    First I read 60-70. Then someone else said 70-75. Someone else posted 55. Today I received my Ebay eggs and their instructions said 90....which one is correct?

    And that says 70-80 [​IMG] [​IMG] Seems like a wide range of opinions, from 50% all the way up to 90%. My bator is at 71% right now and I guess thats where its stayin'!!

    It's always best to try a few hatches and find what will be the best ranges for your part of the country, climate and house. I have nice clean hatches using 40 to 50% range from day 1 thru 18. Just somewhere in those levels. Last 3 days Iuse 60 to 70% range and nothing higher. You will get lots of opinions but it's just what works best for your climate and home.
