    I forgot were my notes are from last hatch!!!

    Can someone tell me how much humidity I start & end with?

    I bought eggs off (([email protected])) few months ago & only 1 hatched!!!

    Plug for dicks chicks!!!
    I went to dicks house yesturday & he gave me a dozen free! (drove 5 hours)
    ((because I had such a bad hatch))

    I felt like a kid in a candy shop ((a house with 2 loors of chickens)) LOL I came home with 4 dozen eggs!!!

    [​IMG] His chickens are nothing like hatchery chickens!!!
    (((never thought there was a big difference in hatchery & show quality)))
    (my barred rocks & his looked like 2 different breeds)

    I drove 5 hours one way once for a rooster believe it or not [​IMG]

    I like 40 to 50% humidity and 60 to 70% last three days..anywhere in those ranges....just depends on what side of the country your on, your weather and housing in my opinion...
