    I've got 48 black copper marans in my octagon 40. I had to put 12 of my extra eggs in my hova bator styrofoam incubator. I ended up putting a few extra eggs in the Styrofoam just to fill it a little more. I ended up with 70 something eggs developing so far.

    That's great. I have to ask. What are you running the humidity at? I know a lot of people struggle with getting the bcms to loose enough moisture and have decent hatches with them.

    Running the humidity at 35% I'm worried that the air cell has not shrunk enough. I may drop it down to 30% for the next 4 days. Then I'll lock everything down and bump the humidity up to 70. What are you thoughts?
