Just set 42 chicken eggs in the Genesis 1588. Barnyard mix with a Buff Orp roo, all set from white or lightly tinted eggs. I'm so excited but really worried that none are going to hatch... the humidity in the house was 15% and I could not get it up, so I've been adding water even though I'd prefer to do a dry incubation. I have been trying to keep it around 40%, but so far it's been a struggle just to get it to stay about 25%. The incubator thermometer and hygrometer are correct, though, so that's good. I can't wait until day 7 when I get to candle! Is it okay to remove eggs from the incubator to candle? How long can I keep them out? Does it mess up the incubator when I crack it open to add water? I know, I need to relax. I just CAN"T WAIT!
