    First time ever hatching eggs . I just got 12 Salmon Faverolle eggs delivered today. Whoooohoooo! They all came through except for one who was cracked. Mike did a great job of packing them tho. Had to borrow a still air incubator to put them in until the one I bought gets here. So they are all settled in now and waiting for the first turn. The bator is a Hova-Bator 1602 N and I've had it plugged in for a few days now. I plan on keeping it at 100% , can't seem to get it higher than that. Also had to raise it off the ground by putting a phone book under it to get the humidity up to where it needs to be. Any and all advice is welcome!
