    Okay, so we're at day 16. In 2 days I stop turning and raise the humidity, right?

    So, for those of you who hand turn and use a still air, like an LG, what do you do for the last few days, temp and humidity-wise?

    Thanks in advance-

    When I still used one it was 100 - 101 degrees all the way through incubation and 60 - 65% relative humidity for the last 3 days.

    Stop turning in 2 days is correct for chicken eggs.
