    I JUST got my incubator in the mail today. This will be my very FIRST hatch ever. I know ideal room temp is 70-90. The room I will put the bator in is 83 and 45% humidity. Is that too much humidity and too high a temp? Should I still put water in the bator??

    I will take ANY hatching tips you'd like to share as well! I am scared to death to mess up! These are eggs from my own chickens, so no worries about losing money on the eggs. I am using these to practice with.

    Do I space the eggs out in the turner or put them all together??

    Thank![​IMG]

    Read your instructions that came with your incubator. No need to space out the eggs.
    Your humidity and room temp sound fine.
