    Just wondering yall's opinion/experience with humidity on a Hova Bator 1602 "thermal air flow" incubator with fan? What should I try to keep it around and what measures are you using to keep it the humidity where you need it? [​IMG]

    I usually tell people to start at 35 to 40% day 1-18 an 65 to 70% the last 3 days. There is no perfect number that work for everyone everywhere but that is a good starting place that should hatch chicks. Those numbers actually work real good here locally.
