    Quote:Your temp for your hatcher needs to be the same as the incubator temp you have used for the last 18 days. Your humidity also needs to be bumped higher in the hatcher. 60 to 70% range for the last 3 days.

    Quote:I suggest you learn real soon how to set that thermostat thing.

    You will get a zero hatch of you set that thing wrong.

    you have to have it set BEFORE you set any eggs..

    If you want help with it ask specific questions... there are lots of people willing to help If we only knew the question..
