    If they are chicken eggs, it's too high. Everyone has their own preference, usually based upon their environment. I prefer to shoot for 30-40% for the first 18 days, then 60-65% for the last 3 days.

    Too high!!

    www.brinsea.com has a free downloadable hatching manual with all kinds of tips. It is where I bought my incubator.
