Our Hatched Chicks 2010

    January hatch didn't go as planned.
    [FONT=times new roman,times]But I learned a bit about the humidity in Alaska and the incubators I have. I have a lot more learning to do....[/FONT]
    Humidity in my home in January is very low 0-12% most days. So I have to compensate for that in the incubator by adding more water.
    Humidity in the incubator should read about 35% day 1-18
    Humidity in the hatcher day 19-Hatch should be 65-75%. Putting in a couple of sponges, papertowels under the mesh works great for adding humidity through the vent, without opening the incubator. Trying to fill the water trough through the vents, not so great, even with tubing.
    If we make our own incubator, I will figure a way to add the tubing to the side permenately so there won't be any mistakes....lol (sure there will)
