My broody hen left 3 eggs in the nest to care for 2 chicks that hatched. What temperature do I set the Brinsea Mini Advance for the last 5 days of incubation? I've never used it before! I don't know if it's 5 days out for sure just want to make sure I put in enough time. HELP!
The temperature should be 99.5. The eggs do not have to be turned if you only have 5 days til hatch.
If at all possible, use two thermometers to check the incubator temperature. Both of my Brinsea Mini Advance were off by 0.5 to 1.0 degrees. It's best if you have a small thermometer that you can set right in the incubator and view without opening it. It will take approximately 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize.
