    I had my first chick hatch and let me tell you it was fun! I'm hooked already I had 23/24 hatch the one died for some unknow reason. A 95% rate I was so worried that I wouldn't even get half that. But the hovabator 1588 made it so easy. Days 1-18 I kept a close eye and kept the humidity at 45-50% then day 18 (lockdown) I upped it to 60% and let them go and well the results 23/24 happy healthy chicks! So happy and so much more confident with hatching now. I hope this is the right place to post! If not please move it? And happy hatching to all!
