i have a broody banty.. and no rooster! so instead of denying her momma hood, we decided we were ready to add to our flock. today i made a homemade incubator, and we ordered 8 fertilized eggs. they should arrive tomorrow! but im having trouble finding what i need to do. i do know i need it to be between 99-101F i do know i need to turn them atleast once a day. but thats it!!! how long should it take.. seems like everyone says 25 days max. how high should the humidity be? what is lockdown? and how do i know how to do it? should i bother candling? and how do i go about that? how long should hatching take from peeps(?) to free chick!! when can i take them out of the incubator, and do i need to provide feed/water in there? and how long should they stay in a brooder box? what should temp be in there? and lastly... how many can i safely put under my banty you think? please help me figure out what to do, i would much appreciate it! i want to do it right.. but am having trouble finding the proper info!
