Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

If you haven't noticed yet, I am the king of typos.

When I post in the "What Breed Or Gender Is This" section, I do not name hatchery/peoples' hybrids by a "breed" name (for example, Oliver Egger)--they are either a purebred or a mixed breed.

Please like my NEW facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/BantamFan4Life-571978982974734/

Look at my flock page! http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/bant...

Welcome to BYC!

Wow, that's pretty warm, and I have no idea how to incubate in those temps. Have you seen this forum yet?

Maybe someone there will be able to help you?

Hi please advise for peafowl eggs i am using 50%-55% humidity for first 25 days then shifting eggs to hatcher where i raise the humidity to 65%-70% does this sound correct as a local who also hatches peafowl says humidity should be 80% during the whole 26-28 days of incubation please advise
