what is the humidity suppose to be in the last days please
About 70% in the final 3 days.
if you keep it at the 45-50% humidity like it has been the other 18 days for the last three will it still hatch, or without raising it everything dies?
as well as how does a momma chicken we is on day 18 of 21 sitting on her eggs raise her humidity 20% more for the last 3 days, does she sweat more to make more moisture on purpose? or is this 70% humidity thing just a guess? thanks
Mama hen doesn't leave the next over those last three days, and she pretty much sheds her breast feathers. I don't know the exact mechanism, but she definitely raises the humidity during those last three days.....which is why we need to too....I don't think it's "just a guess" at this point.
im convinced just wanted to see how god created chickens to do this the last three days, i didnt know that broody hens would leave the nest alot during the first 18 days.
