    I'm trying to hatch Ducks and chicks.
    I've just put in a thermonter that has a humidity reading.
    Couldn't get one before today.
    Temp is holding at 100.
    Humidity says 37.
    I read so much. That I can't remember what the humidity is suppose to be. HELP:he
    I have a LG with a turner.
    Also how do i fix the humidity. More water, Less, put plug in?[​IMG]

    I read the article. And I think its ok for now.
    And I believe I should put the plugs in again.

    THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.[​IMG]

    Quote:You should keep one open for new air, if you close both you wont have any fresh air comming into the bator and thats not a good thing !!!!!

    What type of bator is it ???

    I have a LG and day 1-18 keep one open and on day 18 open the other one, works great for me !!! But like I said make sure you are getting some fresh air in there.

    It's a LG No fan.
    Ok I'll leave 1 open.
    Say's from the article to raise the Hum to 60 to 70 % after day 18.
    So less water will raise it or Less?

    I'm such a GOOF BALL:hit
    I read thing's and think I have it straight and thern I get up and forget.!!!

    Quote:Same here LG with no fan, thats why we need to leave one open to get air !!! Yes on day 18 stop turning the eggs and up the hum to about 65% (also dont open the bator in till after they hatch)You will need to ADD water and if that doesnt get it up there you can put in a few wet sponges or paper towels to help it get higher.
