    Hi Schultz! The Seramas hatch on the 19 to 20 th day of incubation. I set my Incubator between 101 to 102 degrees with Humidity at 50 to 60 percent.
    When you recieve your eggs, place them in an egg carton and let them settle for at least 8 hrs. to let them get to room temp, then place them in egg rack in incubator. Around the 7 to 9th day you may candle them, and then candle them again on the 16th day. On the 16th day after candleing them, take the ones that have an air sack and place them point end down in the incubator, (after you take out the egg rack) Unless you have 2 incubators like I do. The ones without an air sack are no good.

    Be Patient and try not to open the incubator unless to candle! Good Luck!
    You will fall in love with this tiny breed of Bantams!

    Quote:Well we fell in love with them a long time ago but never had the opportunity to get eggs until now. We have a homemade bator but I think we can handle the temps ok.
