    Im hopefully getting 2-3 ancona eggs to hatch over the summer and ive been having trouble finding information on how to incubate them. Any advice or websites you might suggest?

    What are you using for an incubator?
    I hatch mostly with my sportsman cabinet incubator. I keep it at 99.5*, 50% humidity which I bump up to 60-65% at lockdown.

    If you have a styrofoam incubator, no fan, you'll want the temp slightly higher around 100-101*. I use the same humidity but you'll have to test it for your hatching methods.

    Be sure to put the incubator in a room with no drafts and where temperature doesn't fluctuate
