    I have never hatched chicks before but i want to. I am looking at getting a innovator with an automatic egg turner. Almost every weekend i go to my cottage. My question is would it be possible to leave for 2 days and the humidity and temperature remain all right. Help would greatly be appreciated

    Hi..I am a first timer here and have eggs in the bator for the very first time (Hovabator Genesis 1588) and I have found that each time I put some new water in I have to watch until it settles back to correct humidity but once it has I don't have to touch it for at least two days...the temp on this thing is rock solid it is just the humidity I watch...
