Original post: Ready, set, hatch! So I set up my ceramic heat emitter, thermometer, hygrometer (humidity measuring thing), and the egg. (I know people say I have to wait 24 hours, but trust me the heat emitter is slow and steady with heating up; I've had it for a couple years already and used it for my snake. Case in point: it's been on for twenty minutes and the thermometer has yet to move up. lol) Humidity is 70% in here... should I be concerned? The temperature has to be at about 100ºF, right? If that's the case, I might have to move the heat emitter closer to the egg somehow. In case you're wondering, yes they are likely fertile, as the hens were kept with a rooster when I purchased them. Here are some pictures... My first egg! The incubator. (Now using two water bowls.) Candling pictures are a few posts down.
