    I would like to preface this that I know ABSOLUTELY nothing about hatching chicks. For my FFA ag science fair project, I'm testing the effects of egg angle during incubation on hatch rates. I'm using a hovabator 1602n, and the instructions aren't very helpful. I have no idea how much water to add, where, and if I should go ahead and get something to measure humidity so I can regulate it... if so, where? I'm sure this all sounds really dumb, but I really need help! Thanks in advance.
