Starting my first 6 eggs tonight any good advise?

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by can you hear me now?, Jul 5, 2008.

  1. Am putting my first 6 eggs in bator any advise for a first timer. Good temps turning things of that sort.
     
  2. 1. If you bator is a still air keep temps in the 102 degree range. If forced air (fan), 99.5 - 100.5.

    2. Turn egg 3 times a day. You can put them in egg cartons and tilt the cartons side to side. It's easier and works just as well.

    3. Humidity - 40-45% days 1 - 17.

    4. Day 18 stop turning and turned humidity up to 65-70%.

    Have fun!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
