    incubation is very simple

    Incubation time is 18 days
    eggs need to be turned at least 3 times a day
    automatic turner is recomended
    maintain humidity 40 to 45 % from day 1 to day 15

    stop turning on day 15 and increasy humidity to 65 %


    what incubator do you have?

    Everyone has different ways of doing it.

    I keep Hum. at 50%, Temp. at 100.5 - 99.5, turn 2-3 times a day.
    I stop turning at 14 and increase Hum. to 65%- 70%.
    For an egg turner I use an egg carton and (2 eggs to each hole) put a lego under one side and just switch sides twice a day.
