    Hi everyone,
    Today is day 18 for my eggs and I put them in the hatcher at 10 am!
    The temp right now is holding at 100 and the humidity is at 65% at
    present, so is this ok? Or shall I adjust it? My last incubation attempt was horrible so I am trying for this time to be excellent..... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What was your humidity the first 18 days?

    I only up the humidity once the eggs have externally pipped.

    If its the last couple days 100 F and 65% humidity sound perfect to me , Now just go knit a blanket while you wait to keep youre hands buesy

    That's pretty low. I like to set mine at 45-55% until they pip.

    What kind of incubator? Still or forced air?

    100F with 65% humdidity is 89 degrees wet-bulb, a little low. I try to keep it 90-91 degrees wet bulb for the last three days.
