    I haven't hatched any yet.

    But I'm gonna try some soon. I'll incubate the same way I do chickens and turkeys.

    25 to 30 percent humidity. Then raise 65 to 70 percent for hatch.

    Temp 99.5 for my forced air incubators. 101 for my still air.

    I'll feed them 28 percent game bird starter.

    I do mine at 99-100* and ^60 and on day 14 I increase to 80+. I know it may be over kill on humidity. But I have gotten good hatches since I started in February.
