    Wow! That's a tall order to fill in one thread!
    You might be better off doing a search of specific questions you have, then posting the questions you are still unsure of individually.
    Good Luck! [​IMG]

    temp-99.5
    time -21 days
    first 2 days let eggs set undisturbed, next 16 days turn eggs 2 or 3 times a day ,last 3 days leave eggs alone,let chicks stay in bator till dry ,leave eggs in for 1 extra day to be sure they all have a fair chance.
    Then theres 100 other things you have to do and not do. Plus everyone has their own settings for humidity and air flow.Also there are a lot of different types of incubators .
