    Hey yall, I was wondering if anyone had any experience and/or advice for incubating Serama eggs with those from Ameraucanas and sex-links. Is it okay to put them all together? Can they just go into the egg turner with the others? What temp/humidity? We have the Genesis Hova-1588 with auto turner. Any help would be greatly appreciated-sorry for so many questions...new to this and don't wanna mess up! Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    I just hatched a batch of Seramas with silkies & Orps. I had 9 serama eggs, one wasn't fertile, one developed partway & quit and one pipped on the bottom of rhe eggs & drowned before I got to it. The other 6 hatched fine.

    Thanks for the reply-so sorry you lost a few though. Always sad. What temp/humidity did you have it set on and when did you stop turning, etc?

    Temp was 99F and 55% humidity during incubation, and 62% during hatch. Automatic turner was every two hours.
    Stopped turning on morning of day 19
