    Hey, First time hatching. I have the incubator warming up now and watching the temp and humity.. it was stable at 105 degrees and 54 percent . Is that fine? I opened it a second and it dropped to 100 degrees and 52 percent.. I did that to imitate if I was turning the eggs.

    Also, dont have egg turners, so do you think having the eggs in cartons in the bator will work?

    Quote:Way to high in temp, you need the temp. at 101 for still air & at 99.5 for forced air, I run my humid. at about 30-40% for the 1st 18 days & then bring it up to about 65-70% as for the cartons, thats what I use.
