    I am going to be getting shipped eggs beginning of June and am thinking about trying the dry incubation method. What exactly is dry incubation? I have done some reading about it and I gather it is you don't put any water in the incubator until Day 18. Am I correct on this, or does it depend on where you live? For dry incubation what should the humdity of the incubator be for the first 18 days? Any suggestion/input I can get is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
