Okay so I got a new rooster after I discovered the other one I borrowed was six years old and no longer 'interested' and he is wonderful! Today I got 6/8 eggs that were fertile! Anticipating this, I made a styrofoam incubator, because I know for a fact none of my hens would sit. It's got a 40 watt lightbulb, a small fan for circulation, a dish with water and a sponge for humidity, and enough room for a dozen fertile eggs! Few questions: 1.) I just turned it on, with no eggs in it, planning to run it a day or two before I put the eggs in, how long will it take to get to the right temp and humidity? 2.) I plan on collecting the dozen fertile eggs from a few select hens, so that's idk.. About 4,5, maybe 6 eggs.. So how do I store the soon to be hatching eggs before incubation? Turning? Etc Thank you!
