What kind of meter and incubator are you using? How does your water reservoir/s work? You will need to get your humidity a lot higher for the hatch----you should have tested that before you put the eggs in if you did not already know what needs to be done??Hello, I am on day 3 of my 1st incubation. I can't seem to get the humidity up above 45% (guinea eggs). Is this a major issue or is it close enough to the reccomended 50% the manufacturer recommends?
OK, I have hatched Many Guinea eggs---real good hatch results/% as well as many chicks---10,000+/- in the last 3 or so years. I like to stay in the 35% range for the incubation. I have helped people in many area's,My area--SC, California, Canada, WV, New York, Texas, etc and told them to start there and see what happens---most had great results and Now stay in that range for the incubation. I forget where Amy lives but I think she stays in that area---she even dry incubates alot. Good Luck.what humidity would you be at?
is humidity different for guinea vs. chicken?
what humidity would you be at for hatching?
Thank you for your time. I am going to see about getting another guage to use.
Hey alot of incubators tell you to get in the 50% range---I am just saying for Me and many others on here that hatch alot---Thats to high---I have alot better luck---higher hatch % with it lower.Ok gotcha. What if I got the new meter and in the mean time ordered a new incubator, tested it for a day then transfered the eggs to it? I feel like I may never trust this incubator. Especially since you have such different incubation humidity #'s than the directions say
