What is the humidity level for cotrunix eggs?
Everything I have read says 50% to 60%.
That was something I was wondering also.
With my coturnix eggs I never put any water in for the first 15 days and my humitidty stayed about 45-55. During lockdown I filled the bottom rings of my hovabator and got 65% humidity and I always have good hatches. I set 20-30 eggs every week and never had more than 7 not hatch and most of those ended up being double yolks.
I've had successful hatches with my humidity getting as high as 80%, but 50-60 seems to work best.
around 60 is what i had going on. I kept the resivour filled as it is so stinking dry up here..
50-60% humidity for days 1-14. day 15 bump up to 70-80% and some folks drop the temp by 1 degree f==== i usually do this and have very good results. In some parts of the country your ambient humidity will allow dry incubation umtil the lockdown stage.
