    Its alot of info to sfit thru and some things like humidty can have differing opinions but still you should read up as much as you can but definatly ask questions one or two at a time as they come up.
    Basics is
    Forced air 99.5 for day 1-18
    Lock down day 19-21
    Humidity depending on if your doing it the normal way or dry way is up to 50% or less untill its time to hatch then you crank it up to the 70s
    Dont open the incubator during lock down.

    Still air the only diffrance is you want apx 101 temp
