I started a new thread to not hijack the hatch a long. I'm placing my first set of eggs tonight. A hovabator 1602, no turner. I have a wireless grilling thermometer I'm using for air temp. It is still air so I was thinking 102 from what I've read. I am looking at hygrometers on amazon and once I get one, how do I adjust humidity?? And also can someone point me towards the information for what settings I need throughout. I'm starting this chicken project as close to cost free as possible. And it's going to need to stay there for a while. A work friend is going to bring me his eggs, he has two roosters and two hens. Both are laying and he feels the eggs are fertilized. He used to have over 100 chickens and sold eggs and chicks so I feel like he knows what he's talking about. He his going to bring me 1-5 day old eggs depending on when we work together. Can I clean and refrigerate these eggs to eat if my incubator is not ready? I might look into getting a second incubator or something home made to move "lock down" eggs too. I'm also making a chick station, two of them. To move the dry chickens to after I've tied to sex them. How warm does this area need to be? Thanks for your help! I'm going to keep this thread for questions I have along the way. Please feel free to just paste a link. I've been using the search and google but still have some questions.
