    This is my first time setting eggs on my own. I've done it with my grandma years ago. So I've read plenty of articles on here and books. My biggest question is, do I just keep it simple and go with the tried and true techniques? or do I go along with some other techniques like "dry" incubation method, etc? Just curious since this is my first time I don't want to be put off by poor results.

    Im not an expert hatcher by any means, I have done the standard way and the dry hatch. Next time I am going to weigh my eggs and use that method, increasing/decreasing humidity based on weight. I have only done 1 dry hatch, but it was more successful than the standard hatches.
