Quote:Congratulations!!! Looks like you're gonna have a nice flock increase!


Having such a good hatch I've got a couple of questions for you...


What type of incubator?
What humidity levels have you used?
These were eggs from your flock? Not shipped?
Any temperature issues?

Thanks, and again, fantastic hatch going on!

sorry I have not posted sooner. I got 25 chicks out of 29 eggs. So I only lost 4 which all 4 developed but just did not hatch not sure why.


Have not gotten to take pics yet. 12 of them went to live with my aunt today for her daugher who has been waiting on RIR chicks for along time.

Intheswamp I am using a Still air LG. My humidity ran from day 1-18 40-45% and my temp was 101-102 from 1-18. On day 18 temp stayed the same but I up'ed the humidity to 75%. These eggs were bought from someone about an hour from me and drove home in my own car and was fresh and put into the incubator the same day they were laided. I had one temp issue on about day 13 spiked to 103 but that was about it. All are doing well and eating and drinking now.
