Hi everyone!! So I will be doing my first incubation and oh boy will it be a big one! About 40 chicken eggs! Hopefully for a better hatch rate. So I've been reading A TON of information on incubating and hatching on here that it's getting OVERWHELMING! I get the jist of incubating but just want someone to start from the BEGINNING from receiving the fertile eggs to day 21! I will post my steps and please correct me or add to it!! Please keep it very basic and minimal! Thanks 1) I received the fertile eggs in the mail . I put them pointy side down in the egg carton and let them sit for about 3 hours before putting in the bator. **DO I NEED TO SLANT THE EGG CARTON ON ONE SIDE FOR THREE HOURS OR SWITCH SIDES THROUGHOUT THE THREE HOURS?** 2) Get bator ready and warmed up. I have the little giant 9300. I've been running it and the humidity seems to stay at 47 degrees F. Should I keep the temp at 101? And the humidity at 47 degrees F. ? 3) Right before putting the eggs in the bator I will mark them with X and O . Also I will candle them and draw a line where the air sac is. Then I will place them in the bator with automatic egg turner. 4) I will turn them 3x/day 5) day 7 I will candle them. If I see veins they are fertile. HOW DO I KNOW IF THEY ARENT FERTILE? Just the veins not being present? 6) Day 14 I will candle again! I'm looking for th air sac to get bigger right? 7) day 18 will be lock down! TEMP STAYS THE SAME AS THE ORIGINAL BUT THE HUMIDITY GOES UP TO ABOUT 70-76 degrees F right? PLEASE CORRECT IF IM WRONG!! I will also remove the turner 8) keep an eye out for popping and movement and let those little darlings hatch! Thanks everyone!! Please correct me if I'm wrong or add in steps if I missed something !! I just need a simple step by step because all the forums on here are like a thousand pages!!
