    I hatched out 21 out of 24 standard sized eggs using this last month.... I forgot to add water for the first two weeks and had a great hatch. Now I'm hatching out some bantam eggs and I'm torn between adding water or not because I had such a good outcome last time with out water for the first 2 weeks. What do you think? Any advice would be appreciated... This is only my second hatch and my first with the smaller eggs. Thanks.[​IMG]

    Quote:I always make sure the wells are full of water to start and then top them off again when I stop the egg turning.

    I have standards and banties mixed. I am at the end of day 8 with 12 wiggly popcorn shrimp babies. I did water in each of the sides. I got an expensive digital thermometer and it says I've got 44 percent humidity which is exactly what I wanted...
