    Hi, I am about to incubate my first lot if call eggs, and have been reading up on temperature and humidity. I have ma Brinsea Mini II advance and wondering what humidity and temperature I should set it at, and what it should be changed to for hatching? If I have picked up the infor correctly, "lockdown" should happen 3 days before day 28? Please correct me if u am wrong!

    Day 25 is lockdown. I'll be going on Lockdown soon, I'm gonna have my temp. at 99, and the humidity at 55%. That is what people who have good hatches have done so I'll listen to them. Is that right dan? @dan26552

    No, I am doing lightweight ducks, but the temp and everything is the same, I think. Many people say to have humidity at 55%, but that is way to high. My humidity is ranges 30-40 % and my temp is stays from 99-100 degrees F. All but one of the fertile eggs is doing great!
