    i ordered 8 fertilized eggs for my broody banty gal, and she cant cram them all under her, (as i suspected when i realized how big they were!) i went to TSC and bought a little gaint still air bator... and its warming now.

    if i am remembering correctly temp should be 99-100, and humidity 50-60%? until day 16? then lock down, right?? ACK! please help me hatch these babies!

    101 at the top of the egg. About 30 to 40% day one threw 18 then up to 65%. Humidity is hard to just give a number an it work everywhere but this is what I think is a good place to start.
