Howdy! I just set my first batch of eggs in the incubator, I think it's a little giant 9200 with a fan and turner, 2 days ago and I want to be prepared. Some had been in the coop for close to a week so I candled and marked the obvious ones and I'll do it again in a week...unless you guys say otherwise. I've got 21 with 6 confirmed from a mixed flock . I've ordered a hydrometer so I don't have a clue what my humidity is doing right now but I have filled 2 cells with water and there's no moisture on the windows. The last 7 years my girls have done all this for me, who knew it was so complicated!? I've seen a few posts of people taking the egg turner out at lockdown, is that SOP or just a preference, what do I do..and why? Also, am I increasing the temp at lockdown too? I know I'll want to get the humidity up a bit but is there anything else? I feel exactly the same as when I was I was pregnant...I think I read the ENTIRE internet and still felt like I had no clue what I was doing!. I can see how this could pretty easily become my next addiction.
