what is the drowning point of humidity 4 your bator?
ooh GOOD question!....
(Why are we all eating popcorn again??? )
Quote:were waiting for the hatching Guru's to answer....
Just waiting for it to start...
Okay... I give!!!
and believe me, I'M NO GURU!!!!
I am new and have never had a chick drown (yet), but I also used dry incubation.
There is a TON of information on multiple, MULTIPLE threads, here at BYC, if you use "search" plus "humidity" I bet you wil get, say, 8 zillion results (but no clear, definitive answer )... A LOT of people posting on those threads name their numbers, and talk about their results, VERY MUCH including chicks that have drowned in the egg!!!
Come on I am going to be sick eating all of this ! I don't even like popcorn !
I'm no guru and I'm certainly not that scientific so I'll wait for the answer too.
I am far from a guru that is for sure. But I have read a lot and hatched some. I think the answer is unknown. There has been a lot of information on here about chics drowning at high humidity, and others claim great success at the same humidity that other fear they drown them. I have had better luck at lower humidity with a little more air flow. I beleive that the science of in home hatching is relatively un explored and most use what has worked for them in the past.
how about i put a gallon of salt in all that popcorn
kinda like this..
