Hey! I am planning on hatching some chickens and guineas this year. I have about 20 birds in my flock but have never hatched any myself. I was going to get an incubator from customincubators.com but then read some bad reviews about them on here. So looks like I'm getting a Hova-bator 1588. Especially now that Ive seen the new model!! However I have some questions... I have done a LOT of reading on this, I'm a research fiend when I'm starting something new. But what should happen between pulling the eggs and placing them in the incubator? Do I need to leave them sitting out for any length of time? What should I do with them while I'm waiting to have enough to fill the incubator? etc etc.... Also I see a lot of controversy over humidity levels, what are the pros and cons of high humidity vs low humidity? Any other tips or advise you care to offer will be greatly appreciated.
