About 50% I think is the norm. I have had 100% but they were my eggs and it was cooler out. January type months. Those hatches make you think wow this is easy what is happening to everyone else...... well several hatches later I know better now. I also would like to know if anyone thinks that the last ones to hatch, do they get effected by the terrible stench that occurs from a large hatch?... maybe smaller is better.
I started mine at 40% - 50%. Will it matter if I increased the humidity to 55% if the eggs are around 15 days? The reason I asked is because, I have the GQF 1502 incubator. It is my first time using an incubator. So I keep on adding eggs every week. 2 days ago, I reading the manual, it says that I have to increase humidity level after the 18 day. I am worried that the rest of my eggs wont hatch if I do that. Can you advice me on this? Thank you.
