I know there has been a million threads about incubating eggs, and incubators themselves; what's the best incubator, what's the best method, and so on. Well, I've been playing with the idea of hatching eggs off and on for a long time now. Every time I decide to get serious about it, I start researching. That's when I get flustered. All the talk about humidity, plugging holes to adjust heat, piping water in for more humidity, dry incubation, and so on. Then, I try to find out what the best incubator is for beginners, and although I've seen a consistency with the recommendations of a few brands, the sticker shock of those incubators is enough to make me cry.I know it won't be all that scary and confusing, once I've learned it a bit. But is there some sort of "How to incubate eggs for dummies, on a budget", type page anywhere? I just want to be able to have something that just spells it out, easy peasy, step by step, what to do. I know there are some incubators that seem like you can just plug it in and walk a way, but I can't really afford those. FYI, I did see the "learning center" pages at the top about incubating and hatching eggs. Though they were helpful, still kind of seemed confusing. I know I sound like a real dingbat, and I promise, I'm normally pretty smart about things, lol! I think it might just be something where I need to get an incubator, then follow the steps, one by one.(whatever those might be) I guess my question is, how did you learn how to incubate eggs?
