Anyone here use a seperate incubator for the last 3 - 4 days of a hatch ?
How does this work out for you ? What is the humidity goal for your lockdown incubator, and is it a still air or forced air
type ? My next hatches I am planning on moveing the eggs to a seperate incubator for the last 3 days, so I can set multiple
clutches of eggs at different times.

hey We just started using a second incubator, so we can transfer eggs from the turner to the other bator(hatcher). so far it has worked great for us. we use that rubbery like drawer shelf liner over the wire to aid in cleaning up no mess. so if it needs to be changed real quick it is easy . Also letting us have staggered hatches. In the turner we keep our eggs in order and dated with the date to come out of the bator on top. We have just a little styrofoam forced air baor and it works great for us. we keep the lock down bator at 65-69 % and it has worked alot better for us.

Yeah I use one, In Lock Down, the humidity is 70%. I incubate at 30%. I incubate in the Fridge incubator, and hatch in the cooler incubator. Here is the Fridge incubator.
