Hi guys we need some help with humidity for:
*Chicken eggs......... day 1-18 55%-65% day 19-21 65-80% ?
I wish I could give you the info you need but I would never put those in the bator together. The eggs require different humidity and temperatures and have different hatch times. But that is just me.
Hopefully someone with experience can help you. Good luck.
It depends on what kind of ducks you are incubating. Muscovies take 35 days to hatch. Calls take about 23-26 days. Other breeds take 28 days. All waterfowl should have at least 65% humidity during incubation, and 85% during hatch (last 3 days). You also need to lower the temps 1 degree the last 3 days.
Turkeys are about the same as chicken eggs for temp and humidity, though I have yet to hatch turkey eggs. Chickens should have about 45-55% humidity days 1-18, and 65% for the hatch.
All birds take the same temperatures for hatching, but some need lower temps in the end.
