    could I/should I maybe mist the chicken eggs twice a day to help with the humidity? Would this make the hatch rate better? I can't get the humidity to stay above 26% I just put the eggs in the bator this afternoon

    No you shouldn't mist chicken eggs, Do you have water in the bator ?? What day are the eggs on ?? You can try adding a wet sponge (new) to get the hum up. But do be carful sometimes a little water can go a long way. Your hum should be between 35%-40%

    Are you sure your gauge is right ??
