The Little Giant 9300.. Have WILD Temp swings
I ended up rebuilding mine..the fan is offset.. some people rotate lid daily.. I guess that's helped some.. I'd run incubator first ..checking temps with a good checked thermometer in all 4 corners.. when I did that on mine I got diferent temps..
Do you only have 3 eggs in there? How high is your humidity? Good luck with the hatch!
They're are 4 now. As I only seem to have 1 hen laying eggs. :/
Humidity is between 40-55% Misty of the time.
Many people keep humidity around 35-45% for the first 18 days, then increase to 60-70% for lockdown. It's called the dry hatch method, and seems to work pretty well for most. It really depends on how large your air cells are on candling days. There are some good charts around that show how big they should be on day 7, 14, and 18. Bottom line is, small air cells = too high humidity, big air cells = too low humidity.
Day 5 does this look right?
I can't see the air cell in your picture, but as long as it is not too big/small according to the chart and there is veining everything should be good
Day 13 of our journey. We lost 2 of out 4 eggs so far. One never developed, one gave a blood ring. The other two look like this one. Does this look right??
Day 14 air cell- is this this the correct size? Our only two surviving eggs of our first Hatch project.
