    OK: I have had little success since I started trying to learn to incubate. The temps have been steady the whole time, but many times the eggs quit in the first 10 days. Would humidity be a cause of that? If so, how do I improve things in a very dry climate? Maybe it's just the little giant incubator?????????? It's annoying, that's for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If they die in the first 10 days, then it is something big causing it.

    First, how do you know the temps are correct?

    I have had wonderful luck with my little giant, but thats not saying yours may not have issues. I am pretty new to chickens only been doing it about a year now.

    @ RONTwo different thermometers. To be fair, I have to use shipped eggs.
