All good experiments gotta start somewhere!
Good day to be sentimental
Thats what I was thinking
Sidewing, Yes, that is a three hole box. I have three different two hole and one six hole. These are a must if you plan on showing birds. Don
AMY, we use the GQF Sportsman incubators and a 1200 Brower. I also have a few of the GQF styro I never try and tell anyone how to Hatch their eggs or how to take care of their Birds. My motto is you buy the feed and take care of them so do what ever makes you happy. Now if anyone ask I will explain how we hatch eggs. Don
Ok, how do you hatch eggs and on what scale. Are you hatching 100s, 1000s at a time?
A question for the blue team - What is the range you like the humidity to be prior to lockdown?
Depends on the incubator. Seems like most styro users like a lower humidity, but in the Octagon 20 my best results have been 40-42%. Much higher than 45% and I have drowned them, and my only sub 80% hatch rate I incubated at 35% and had a 50% hatch rate
Your parameters are very similar to mine, but I'm only hatching 24 .
I can't imagine hatching on that scale, but I can see how I could get to that point. Are you hatching with a specific goal percentage of keepers in mind, or are you just getting as many feet on the ground as you can to cull from. Another question that I have always wanted to ask you is about your culling. Is a cull an automatic kill, or will you sell less desireable birds? Does the severity of the fault determine sell vs. kill?
