    Tomorrow I'm moving my eggs to a Little Giant still air. I'm using it as a hatcher for the first time. What should the humidity & temps be?
     
  2. Good Morning, Carole!

    I like 101.5 degrees at egg height and 65% humidity in the hatcher (and a LG still air is what I use, too).

    I hope the hatch goes well!

  4. Oh yeah!! I'm sending todays eggs to you tomorrow morning [​IMG]
    I got an egg from the mottled Japanese pen this morning and should have an egg from the mottled Cochin pen to add also, if you want to give them a go.
    Lol, and a few Button Quail eggs....

    I forgot, who'll be on Day 18 tomorrow?

    LOL! Sure, I'm game for the other chickens, but please no quail. I'll have all I can handle, thank you!

    Got the humidity set to 65* in the hatcher! Woo HOO!
