I read in a duck book that you shouldn't use an incubator to hatch the eggs but only use it up till the time of lock down, especially in forced air incubators. The forced air can dry out the pipped eggs and "shrink wrap" them. So my questions are: Do you use a separate hatcher or do you use the incubator? If you do use the incubator, do you turn off the fan during lock down? What are your results from either way? I'm planning on building an incubator and need to know if I need a separate box for the actual hatching. Also do any of you use an egg turner to turn the eggs prior to putting them in the incubator? I was thinking of using the egg turner while gathering eggs prior to putting them in an incubator with a turner. Getting excited and I'm not even half way there yet.
