Hi backyard chickens. I’ve begun my egg hatching journey. I bought the nurture right 360 incubator. I’ve had it running for almost a day. Temp reads 99.5 to 100°f. It goes back and forth. 50%-53% humidity. Is that ok for temp to go back and forth? Eggs will be here in 2 days. So what I have learned, in this order is; after eggs are received, let eggs rest overnight before putting into incubator. Does this length of time still apply if they come in the morning? When letting them rest, put in an egg carton with the pointed end down in the carton, wide end pointed up. After the sitting period, place in incubator. For my nurture right 360, eggs lay on side with pointed end facing the middle. I have an auto egg turner. It turns every 4hrs. How often should eggs be turned? From days 1-18, keep at 99.5 and 50-55% humidity. 3 days from hatch, increase humidity...I don’t remember to what percent though? Leave chicks in incubator to dry, then remove. I hope I didn’t leave anything out. Hoping to get a high hatch rate, as does everyone lol. Let’s cross our fingers that in 21 days, we’ll have Ayam Cemani, Swedish flower and white Bresse.
