    I made a DIY incubator before purchasing an incubator. my eggs spent through day 5 in the DIY incubator. I transferred them over to the new incubator today. farm innovators 2100 [​IMG] everything look okay?

    The only thing that I could suggest is to check your temperature and humidity with another thermometer and hygrometer that have been calibrated. Humidity is a bit high for days 1 thru 18 if the reading is accurate. Great candling pic for a 5 day embryo.

    I've checked the thermometer with 2 others, and they read consistent across the boar. the humidity has been fluctuating, but it's pretty humid right now where I'm at. I'm not sure if that matters? there's no water in the Bator

    It's very humid here too. I don't put water in until day 18. It looks like you are all set, best of luck with your hatch!
