    I receives 9 golden pheasant eggs yesterday. I placed them in my home made incubator. I have the temp set at 100F and have placed 2 pans of water in the incubater. The relative humidity is at 58%. Is the temp and RH ok for incubation? I try and move the eggs 60 degrees 3 times a day.

    I dont put alot of water in, [​IMG] the first few days just a small amount. These eggs sorta go through a sweat, then they will use more. I keep my humidity around 42-45% and not over. I just put in 18 today and a small amount of water humidity was around 45% dont put a large amount of water at first. I have another setting that is 8 days old and they use around 35cc per day. Air cells were right on target. Adding water is easy taking some out is a pain! Add water till U get where U need the humidity to be. [​IMG] [​IMG]
