Is 60 humidity to high for chicken and duck eggs
Alot of people turn the huhumidity up to 70%. on day 18 of chicken eggs.
Ya but this is my first time incubating eggs and there in day 2
60% RH is much too high for the first 18/25 days of incubation, and it is a bit low for after that. Closer to 70% RH is better for lockdown.
If you run 60% during the whole of incubation, the air cells will not grow enough, and the chick will grow too big & not be able to zip. It'll also likely drown from too much fluid in the egg.
Would 55 be good?
That's the truth. I run mine dry for the first 17 days but I live in Texas it's very humid here.
It's rare for that high a number to work, especially if you're using a tabletop incubator.
I'd start at 30% and check air cells after a few days.
I have the 3600 pro incubator and the lowest humidity it will let me go is 45
How does it not "let" you?
Alarm, or does it have a humidity system that could be disconnected?
Its set up so that I wont go lower than 45
