Hello, I am about to incubate for the first time. (12 rhode island reds, 12 barred rocks and 12 misc.) For the eggs I am collecting, do I have to turn them before incubation? How should I store them?
I have 2 manual thermostats in the incubator right on the grate, right where the eggs will sit. One says slightly above 100, the other is right at about 99 or 99.5. Is this ok?
I have read that 40 to 50 is a good amount of humidity at the beginning, but is has been raining here for days so the humidity is much higher. Is that ok?
Thanks!

You dont have to turn the eggs befor you put them in the incubator you just want them to rest about 12hours prior to incubation. Good luck with your chicks.
