So my daughter has been begging me to incubate the eggs we have been getting from our 1 Pekin laying, figured I would try out 6 of them that we have collected. Mom Pekin - Dad Blue Swedish. A few things to consider with this which could cause us to have a poor hatch rate; first time hatching eggs....unsure if the male has been doing his job... started to store eggs on side until was advised about how to store them... The incubator we are using is the janoel 48, its a still air but from what I read need to keep the temp around 99 degrees. and in the 40% humidity level? So with the hygrometer/thermometer i bought inside and gauging the units stats which as a little off from each other this should be quite the experiment. 6 eggs down, unknown if fertilized.. Cleaned with warm-hot water and 1 ounce bleach dunk. No scrubbing. Hoping for atleast two to hatch so no lonely ducks, but not expecting any with being first timers and alot of unknowns. Wish us luck.. any and all advice is welcome.
