Whats the perfect incubating humidity for standard size orpingtons and also silkies??
I hatch Orpingtons. I keep my humidity around 35% during incubation for the first 18 days then I raise it up to 65% to 75% on day 18 to hatch. I'm sure you will get many different suggestions but that is what works for me and my hatches are nearly 100%.
Thanks for responding i appreciate your help
Quote:That is about my average with humidity too (my numbers vary between 25% and 40%), which works well on the Orpingtons. Have never tried silkies.
40-50% for me and then 65-70% at lockdown and getting 85-90% hatch rate
