    Talk about worry...I bought a new bator (so I'll have a hatcher too) and this is my first time using it! And the thermometer they sent was like 4 degrees off...good thing I checked it! On the plus side, it does have a turner, which is going to be really nice since there are 40 eggs in it. Oh, did I mention there are quail eggs in my "hatcher" incubator. [​IMG]

    You know what...I think it all depends on who you ask about the humidity. I've read everything from 25% to 55%.....I guess we'll all figure out what is best for us with practice.

    Mine is at 34% right now and between 99.5 and 100.

    Well, I set eggs yesterday, too, but I am having a staggered hatch. I have some due to hatch October 27, some due to hatch on Halloween.

    Good luck everyone!!
