Hi every one !
I recently purchased silkie chicks and got bit by the the chicken bug and now getting ready to incubate eggs!!!! Yeahh!!!!!
Wel after reading about incubators and hatching here on BYC I purchased hova-bator 1588 with auto turner. I also purchased a seperate thermometer and digital hydrometer that displays temp also and humidity as wel as dew point. I didnt skimp on hom much I spent either as the thermometer was 14.95 and the digital gauges were 41.99.
My question is this I've had the incubator running since last thursday , so I could get it up and running before the eggs came, and Ive been getting 2 different readings for the humidity the incubator has been steady at around 46 -55% however my digital gauge reads 61% . I followed the hova -bator instructions and filled the # 1 spot with water and left #2 dry anyone know what I how I should gauge the humidity with so different readings?
I have found BYC the best for getting my chicken fix and love how everyone here has the chicken bug! So please advise me on my humidity issue or not?
