    Well, sap that I am, I have fired up my little LG9200 still air incubator with no egg turner. I can't remember that the recommended humidity is for the first 17 or 18 days, and then what we bring it up to. Can someone who uses a similiar incubator remind me of these figures? Thanks.

    I think its around 70% but all we do is fill the water revisors up keep it closed till they start hatching.
    We only had to add wet sponges for the ducks.
    From what I read they said the problem with humidity was that it was never a problem of too much only too little.
     
  3. Hi!
    45% - 50% for the 1st 17 days and increase to 65% til hatch (at least that's what works here).
