In the Brooder
- Feb 4, 2010
I am fairly new to incubating [3rd] hatch. The first hatch went terrible, the second much better but in reading articles on BYC I hear that 85-90% hatch rate is what I should be shooting for. We kept the temp right on the money and humidity at 40-45% for the first 18 days. We are now on day 21 and I can hear chirping .I want to open that door so bad I can taste it. we have the temp.at 99-100 degrees and the humidity at 65%. Think thats correct. I am concerned that we have too many eggs in the hatcher because they are side by side. am I worried for nothing? I think we are supposed to stay locked down for two more days. What will I find when the door comes open?
