    they can set for a week until they need to be put into the incubator
    they take 14 to 17 days to hatch
    lock down is day 13
    lock down humidity 70%
    humidity before lock down is 55%
    the temp needs to be 99.5 to 100.5
    you should feed them 24% protein chick feed
    and ill let someone else answer 8
