    Okay yesterday I got 8 pretty little Gold Lace Bantam Cochin eggs. I let them set 24 hours. My incubator, a hovabator1590, is at 100 degrees.

    I'm nervous as heck. I'm ready to put them into the incubator..yes? LOL

    Is there something that I'm forgetting? This is my first batch of eggs going into the incubator so I'm a wreck!

    Help!!

    Room temp eggs... check
    Stable temp 99.5-100.5 ... check
    Humidity 40-45% ... check

    Knowing the temp in bator will drop when you put in the eggs and that there is no need to touch the thermastat , it will go back up on its own as eggs warm up... check

    I think youre good to go someone will let you know if youre not.
