The last time I tried this, only 8 of 24 eggs hatched and 6 of them died. Please keep your fingers crossed for me. I thoroughly sterilized the incubator with bleach water, as well as let it sit out in the sun for several days. I am trying to keep the incubators humidiy up with a wet clean sponge vs dishes of water. Question - what is the proper humidiy while incubating? I have heard many different things. I don't have an egg turner. This time I am keeping the eggs in a carton (with the top off) Have any of you done that? Do you take them out of the carton when it's time to go into lockdown? I really want these babies to hatch. Thanks for any words of wisdom.
