    We are incubating our 3rd hatch. The 1st time we had 3 out of 4 hatch 75%. The 2nd time we had 11 out of 11 hatch 100%. This is our 3rd hatch and I set 52 eggs compared to 4 and 11. Will it be able to keep a constant temp. ? Any changes in humidity ? This will be alot of turning. Any suggestions would help.

    Thanks, Brian

    It's just the same. Due to increased mass, temp may hold longer too.
