    Hey Showjumper, I'm plumb tickled to hear you got your Rcom 20! Boy, that thing looks good, especially with those eggs in it. [​IMG] I am looking forward to seeing your progress as your incubation goes along. Keep us posted. Oh, and good luck! [​IMG]

    just finished my 2nd hatch in my RCOM 20.. Love it. Good Luck with your hatch. The first few times the jingle goes, check to make sure all eggs are turning. Have Fun...

    Quote:Thanks! [​IMG] Since you've had experience with the Rcom 20 can I ask you a question? Is the temp and humidity reader pretty accurate or should I test it w/ a real thermometer and hygrometer to make sure it's right? Also is 60% high enough for muscovy eggs? I did lots of research and found a lot of different numbers.... like 55%, 60-65% and even 75% (before lockdown and higher during lockdown). So i decided to set it inbetween at 60%. Any suggestions? Hope it's not too low [​IMG]
