Thanks

    Hey, leishi! [​IMG]! Your temperature is way too low, it should be at 98.5 degrees F. after day 18. Also, what is your humidity? It should be 45-50% on days 1-18, and 65-70% on days 19-23. Keep in mind that hatches tend to fail due to: Days 1-18: too much humidity. Days 19-23: too little humidity.

    Also, chicks can take until day 23 sometimes to hatch. Good luck!

    G’Day from down under leishi [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I have no experience with incubators, just hatches under a broody hen but I did just want to wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
