i was sitting there and all sudden it came to me. i never incubated chicken eggs artificaly. In germany i used a broody hen and took the chicks she hatched in the house where they were warm. I hatched snake and anole sagrei eggs but never did chickens. ahh im a newbie. I am confused . I will be using the classic hovabator 1602N. I will have it in the house where it is about 71F +/- 1F. Where i can see the incubator , but safe from sun light and the curios mind of my two year old daughter Sammy-Lou(Samantha). I saw different incubating temps. one says 99.5 the next 101F but never above 103. Also at what humidity should i keep them. I know to turn them twice(unlike reptile eggs-this would kill them)a day. Dont turn them the lst three days and raise the hum by some 10% Here is one more thing will there be a big issue if i put 6 eggs 3-4 days later? I could take them out befoe i raise the humidity and put them in the chick bator i have laying around. ahhh ladies and gents please help me.
