Janeol 12 Questions?!?

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by BackyardAnimalsDucks, Oct 20, 2019.

  1. the janoel 12 incubator doesn’t have very good instructions and it doesn’t have a built in hydrometer. So i got one but it doesn’t seem very accurate. So how often do i need to add water and how much? I’m going to start a hatch-a-long soon.

    I have used the same incubator many times, do the same as listed above. There is a newer model that has come out from the same maker that is much nicer and is more accurate. Check EBay.

    you will benefit from salt testing your hygrometer to determine accuracy. you can calibrate the temp from the menu once you have determined running temp with calibrated thermometers. adding a piece of clean sponge under the vent hole allows for better control of humidity without having to open the lid.
