    this is my first time incubating [​IMG]....

    I have 20 eggs in a Hova-Bator Still-Air Incubator model 1602N, what is the humidity that I need for success?

    thanks

    Day 1-18 around 35-40%, day 18-20 (hatch time) around 65-70%, since its a still air. I keep it a little higher around 75% for my forced air.
