    Hi Guys

    I would like to ask if anyone would like to give me some positive tips about hatching serama eggs, Particularly regarding humidity.

    I will be using shipped eggs, a Genesis 1588 bator with an auto turner.

    I understand seramas are tough to hatch however I would prefer to be encouraged with positive reinforcement.

    Thank you

    I hatched out seramas that came from California to Pennsylvania! (basically coast to coast). None were broken, none were scrambled, all hatched but one that was a quitter by day 5.

    Not all are seramas, but I had atleast 3 seramas hatch to my knowledge (sadly not all the eggs were marked hahaah)!

    ANywhoo... I treated them no differently than any other chicken egg and had basically 100% hatch. Others will tell a different story about not candling them not touching them etc. I treated htem no differently and I sitll got a wonderful hatch. We even had a 4 hour power outage while they were hatching! LOL!
