Here is our new babys
well, didn't candle as I turned the eggs last night........
of course it was made easier, because one of the boys had moved the flashlight.
Thanks and good luck on your as well.
Super suite cute Congrats
Good idea on hiding the light so you can't look.....
you hatched chicks and ducklings at the same time?
Yes I placed the duck eggs in first then on the day that the chickens would have the same lock down day I placed the chicken eggs. Find a list with incubation periods for each breed you have (compare different sheets for each breed) and mark your calendars on the day to add each different breed to the incubator based on the lock down date and go off of it. I have done this for my last three hatches and have had no problems. When you place in eggs of different incubation periods the egg that go in need to be less than 10 days (7 days preferred) since they have been laid, due to lower success rate of hatching.
Brandon, that is interesting.
I'm no expert, but I guess the humidity for both, is similar enough.
Yes I try to keep mine around 85 % during non lockdown and 90% during lockdown.
Wow! Mine is at 45% now on day 5. @bertS where is your humidity at now? What do you plan on raising it to during lockdown? I was planning to shoot for 75% at lockdown but I'll adjust until then depending on air cell. so is my first hatch ever but I've read on here lower humidity in the beginning is good.
