I have two bators due the 20th and the 26th. I am a newbie to incubating. The one due on the 20th is a LG w/o a automatic egg turner, with 12 shipped eggs. The one due on the 26th is a HB w/ automatic egg turner, with 16 non shipped eggs. I ahve a few questions regarding both bators. For the LG w/o auto turner: I do not have a humitifier. But I am planning on adding water so all the little resivoiors are filled up, AND adding a wet rag or sponge, SOUND OK SO FAR? I am planning on adding all this water the the bator on day 18 correct? Also, I am planning on opening BOTH vent holes, on day 18, correct? Now, what if my temp goes down? Do i bump it back up? For the HB w/ auto turner: I have the same questions above ^ regarding this incubator too. Do I need to do all of the stuff^ to this bator too? Also, i am planning on turning off the auto turner on day 18. DO i romove the eggs from the turner or do i just turn it off and let them be? thanks guys I would appreciate it if you guys would reply with your info, advice and any tips!!
