So I have decided that I am going to document my first, ever clutch of chickens. I recently bought 4 lavender orpingtons hens and a 1 lavender roo, and I am very excited to hatch my first bunch. I started off with 14 eggs and added 2 more later that day.

I had the incubator running for about 12 hours before I placed them. I am using the Little Giant Still Air Incubator and I set the temperature to 99.5 Degrees F. The humidity is at a steady 50%, but I’m sure that’s not entirely accurate. I am using an egg turner because they are just more convenient for me. (This picture was taken when I first plugged it in so the temp isn’t accurate and I also opened the vents)

Ibegan incubating on 9/19/2020 and I will add pictures of development at different milestones.

I think with a still air incubator the temperature is supposed to be higher, I’ll look for a link but it something like “educational hatch along” check it out, I think still air is supposed to run at 102 or something

The instructions on the incubator said 99.5 for Chickens, but I'll look into it
