I have the best sister and sister-in-law in the world...they bought me an LG 10200 with fan kit incubator for my birthday AND gave it to me 2 weeks early. I have a few questions though...(chicken eggs here btw) 1. I've read to have the humidity at 60-65% for the first 18 days then up it to 80-85% during lock down? I know climate, current room temp/humidity all are factors, but is this a good range to start with and then adjust as I learn my incubator? 2. I see some people put their eggs in turners/cartons and some just lay them on the mesh bottom...which way is right/better? 3. With above question #2, which would be the correct way to turn the eggs then (I don't have a turner yet)? If they're just laying on the mesh, do you turn/roll them 180 degrees to the other side? 4. I've read a lot about the air cell (and have seen it at the round end of all my eggs) so what do I need to watch for while incubating...what should a good one look like vs a bad one? 5. And last (at least for now ) What day is actually day 1...the day you put the eggs in or the full day after? My chicken eggs went in Jan. 22 at 5:45pm so I think this puts my day 1 at Jan. 23 5:45pm and my hatch date Feb.12th, right? So, I'm completely paranoid and excited all at the same time, probably not a good combination cause my mind keeps creating all kinds of different scenarios of "what if's"....where's the OFF switch Thank you in advance...I love BYC and all it's helpful members.
