Those are all different bators. Does it have a fan? Got a pic?
Incubating can be frustrating but so rewarding.
This what seems to work for me.
Dry incubate 25 to 35 percent humidity for 18 days.
Raise humidity to 65 to 75 for hatch.
Don't trust humidity gauge on incubator most are always wrong.
Always double check incubator thermometer with an accurate thermometer. Brinsea spot check is what I use for a secondary check. It is accurate to .1 degree.
There is a lot of trial and error involved.
What works good for me or anyone else might or might not work for your situation. These are methods that have worked.
Just try a method if it works repeat it. If it doesn't just adjust it a little and try again.
I've had great hatches and awful ones. But I can't explain the joy of hatching.
Especially your own eggs.
Hatching is supposed to be fun.
It is addicting I now have 4 incubators.
Don't get overwhelmed and give up just yet.
Yes it looks like a 10300.
I will give that a try on my next few... I only have 8 hens laying and 3 I have to keep away from the rooster because he is such a heavy bird and they are smaller so he hurts them... but I think this batch is gone... no movement, or sound... they have been in the hatchery for almost a week now no bad smells yet though.
Thank you for everyone's help.. hopefully something will give..
I can tell you that your humidity is too high right now, just by the condensation on those windows. It's either the 9300 or the 10300
yeah. they reader on the top is showing 40%.. but it does look higher.
I just bought one of these.
Haven't used it yet.
Was Gonna set it up next week.
I will turm it on tonight get temp stable and check with secondary thermo. To see accurate the one on the incubator is.
Good luck tell me how it goes..
