    Hello as you can see in my BYC page my temp and humidity wasn't stable. I ended up with a 37% hatch rate. I am setting a bunch more eggs (shipped) this weekend. I really need help with this so I can get a good hatch this time.
    I am using an LG still air.

    Heat sinks..... if you can't fill the bator with eggs.... try some clean sterile jars of warm water (closed so they cannot effect humidity) in the empty spots to help keep cold spots out of the bator. Humidity is all about surface area. Small surface...low humidity...large surface...high humidity. but usually humidity is not as much the issue as temps... unless it's too high and the eggs cannot evaporate like they need to.

    Best of luck with your next hatch! [​IMG]
