    if you've got rotating hatches, with eggs incubating on one or more trays, do you do anything different for humidity or just keep it steady all the way along?

    right now with the hovabators, i am doing a dry incubation, and hatching in a second one with 60+ % humidity...

    but i'm REALLY wanting a cabinet incubator.

    I think some of us use hatchers if we have a big enough incubator to do multiple hatches. Seeing how i use the hatcher I dont know the answer to your question.

    I do multiple hatches all the time. I run day 0 to lockdown in my cabinet and move them into a hatcher at lockdown. I never mess with the cabinet humidity and keep the hatchers running at 70% whether there is anything in them or not.
