I am hatching my first silkie eggs and I am using a "little giant" air forced incubator. I am not sure on what I should keep the humidity on? I am going on with day four and trying to keep the humidity between 50 and 60 percent. I have had to keep sponges in the incubator to keep it at that. any advice on successful hatching would be greatly appreciated! I really do not know what I am doing. I have kept the temperature steady at 99.5 though. When should I candle the eggs? Lots of questions, just hope some experienced hatchers can help me out! Thank you!

humidity should run about 50% untill day 18 & then go up to about 75%, i candle at about day 7 & 11 & 18 sounds like your pretty much on track.
