Set 12 eggs February 2nd in new Little Giant Deluxe model incubator. None of 42 set in new incubator hatched. Trying to keep humidity down on this batch below 40. Has not been easy. Trying rice in sandwich bag today. Candled last night. Does not look good. Must have had beginners luck with old borrowed incubator I used from October 2015 until January 2016. Candle pics up next.
