    Hi all, I am just wanting to make sure I am doing things right since this is my first time with this incubator. It is a hova bator 2362N with auto turner. The temp is 100 degrees and the humidity is 52 degrees. (thats with the plugs out and aluminum foil covering half the trough. ) Are these readings right? Thanks in advance for the help!

    That should be just fine for the first 18 days. After, remove the turner and up the humidity the last 3 days to 70%-75%. The 2362n is a fan model, so ideal temp is 99.5, but 100 will do just as well. Sometimes its better to leave it if its stabilized consistently, instead of trying to drop it that 1/2 degree and chance "head-ache"fine-tuning" fluctuations. Best of luck on your hatch rate![​IMG]
