    What is the ideal number of eggs that should go into this incubator that would result in a good hatch rate? I know the temperature doesn't distribute all through the incubator so I was curious.

    What I do, even though my incubators are forced air, is I move the eggs around within the incubator whenever I candle them. If you want, you can move them all around about every 3-4 days so that each egg spends a bit of time in a corner, in the center, etc.

    Are you using an automatic turner or hand turning?
