Hi, I have currently got some eggs in incubator, I'm confused as to what the humidity should be as the manual said 45% but I see hear and other sites lots of people say 55%. Probably a bit late now as they are on day 15 and i have had the humidity at about 47%.
Hi!! Welcome to the group! The big humidity question (that you will get 100 answers to.) I too am a low humidity incubation method user and prefer 30-35% during days 1-17 and on day 18 (at lockdown) I go up to 75%.I have not candled until today as to nervous about breaking ect but I have just candled and there is a slightly too small air pocket I think. I will run it dry as you say for the next 24 hours but then we reach day 17 and I guess I need to have humidity high then? This is gutting I hope I haven't ruined their chances. I could defiantly see movement inside the egg when candeling. Thanks for help.
Good luck and keep us posted!Thank you this is all so helpful and slightly encouraging to that I might still have some chicks at the end of all this. Glad to be reminded that lock down is day 18 and not 17 as I was thinking, so that gives me a bit longer to run it dry. Egg box idea is a good one also. Thank you
