Would like a refresher on temp and humidity for eggs in incubator. It’s been awhile since I hatched some out. I have a still air with egg turner. This is what I had done before.
50% humidity until lockdown
65-70% humidity at lockdown
I will be incubating BO and Lavendar Orps.
Day 21 for me. I hear chirping inside and some condensation on the windows. Can't see any pips yet, but I can't wait to see what happens by the time I get home from work. I'm glad I'm working today as well. My first hatch, I stayed home all day, and it was torture!!! Good luck and congrats to...
I went in to our local TSC. They had a slew of assorted reds and leghorns...They all looked really healthy!! It took so much to just walk out of there without a few to take home. However, I set up my bator yesterday when I got home, and plan to set eggs tonight! i gotta get my chickie fix!

I have 4 chicks that have hatched. One of which is going on 24 hours of being in the bator. I have at least 4 other pips in there, and my hatch date is today. should I take the hatched chicks out and put them in the brooder tonight? I haven't opened the bator at all. I'm worried mostly about the...
Still only 4 have hatched. The first one hatched last night at 9pm. I still have pips tonight, but none hatching. I hate the waiting. How long should I wait to see if others will hatch? Should I take the first born out and move her to the brooder now? It has almost been 12 hours.
