    Hi! Way to go![​IMG] What was your temp and humidity? Auto turner? Hatched upright or laying on side? Inquiring minds would like to know![​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Quote:We have an ancient cabinet incubator. A jamesway 2940 which has been doing us Good. My Hubby has done some work to it but and I can't take credit cause he's The one who's managed to keep temp And humidity perfect! We Have it in our garage behind some blankets hanging from ceiling with a dehumidifier and air conditioner in with it. We have the hatcher set at 100.5 and humidity at 60%..the incubator is at 60% and temp 99.7. We hatch them laying down:) oh and no auto turner, we turn our selves with an turner handle outside...
