I am just curious. I have heard different things. When the humidity is upped before a hatch do you up it two or three days before or doesnt it make much of a difference as long as it is in the three day time period before they hatch?
Yes, I understand you are supposed to stop turning at day 18. What I was wondering about is do you HAVE to up the humidity on the 18th day or could you wait a little bit closer to hatch time? I was only curious because I have read of people doing both?
I have been upping the humidity on the day I stop turning and put them into the hatcher.
My hatcher is the same temperature as the incubator. I dont have to open it to put water in it, its got a kind of spout to pour the water into. I worry about upping it too soon and having chicks drown as they pip the shell.
