I've raised chickens from day-old chicks before, and decided to try my hand with incubating fertilized eggs from my sister's hens. I used a brand new Little Giant and opted to turn eggs by hand for the full experience. I learned there are cool spots in the incubator. Eggs around the perimeter got chilly especially. When lockdown time arrived, it seemed most of my 36 eggs were developing well. I had a hard time achieving humidity above 50% tho. On the 2nd day of hatch, I was inspired to put my Zaq essential oils diffuser in the incubator with just water & it popped my humidity up to 88% quickly. I just have to keep refilling the water chamber every 5-6 hours.
