So I know this is not the ideal incubator, and I could add a fan but honestly I just want to try the incubator out as is before I go modifying it like I do everything else! I got it as part of a package deal off craigslist with a bunch of other chicken supplies. It did hold temp well within one degree between 99 and 100 after a few minor tweaks of the temp knob. A few questions, shoud I add water before putting the turner in and preheating it, before adding eggs? If so how much to start with? Next, lets say it's day 3 and humidity is low, how do you add water with the turner and eggs in place, the turner covers the whole bottom of the 'bater. As for placement, it looks like I will have about 30 eggs to set. How should I place them, in the center, sides, etc? Lastly (for now!) pointy end up or down? Thanks for any advice, this is a great site! PS I will post pics of chicks when hatched, there will be quite an assortment, but I'm mostly looking forward to the couple of pure BCM chicks and some Wellsummer mixes that are in the group of eggs I have!
