Ok so I put them in my incubator April 6. I have 1 dozen Rhode island reds, 1 dozen Copper Marans, 1 dozen Buff orphingtons, I got locally from to breeders. I have a farm innovators incubator with no fan or turner (finances are tight plus I'm not working so I have time to watch this thing like a hawk). Well its actually not as bad as some said, the temp fluctuates between 99.5 and 101.5 and humidity a pretty steady 40%. So I read others have it set at a lower humidity, I thought it was supposed to be 40% til the last 3 days, why do some people keep it like 25%. Also I can't candle the dark eggs, if they are bad will they really explode? Also I'm in AZ so its dry and all the wells are filled to get to 40%. How will I get it to 65%? I'm sure I have more questions...
