    I have 2 incubators...store bought (although used)...I have no instructions and I'm getting eggs on Saturday. Is there a informational website that you trust and feel is accurate?

    Temp at 99.5 if it has a fan an 101 at the top of the eggs if it dont. Turn the eggs 3 times a day for 18 days an keep the humidity between 30% an 50%. Stop turning on day 18 an raise the humidity to between 60% an 70% an keep the incubator closed.

    PM me and I will point you to some great instructions..
    In the mean time get them plugged in and warm them up WITHOUT any water in them.. get a good thermometer,(just one) and a hygrometer..

    I downloaded really comprehensive instructions from Brinsea's website last year.
    They're not specific to Brinsea incubators and there was loads of really useful extra information.

    RCom's website probably has the same thing on it too...

    You're in the right place if you want info on chicken anything. Do a search on this site and you should find everything you need. If not, ask questions like you already have and keep checking back.
