    I feel like I'm asking a dumb question here, but hey, the only dumb question are those not asked, right?

    Anyway, I'm getting ready to set some chicken eggs for an easter hatch, but it occured to me that I have (almost) no idea what heat to keep the incubator at or what the humidity levels should be. I am using a home-made still-air, so it didn't come with a guide, and unfortunately my arsenal of poultry books only discuss incubating ducks and geese. I hatched some calls last spring, so this isn't my first time using an 'bator, its just my first time hatching chickens.

    Thanks!
