    i am a total novice at hatching and having chickens but have some Belgium d’Uccle eggs I have been reading up on how to care for them but there seems to be some conflicting info out there. Can anyone help me please?

    I have my incubator set around the 37.5 degree Celsius mark as per the person I bought the eggs from but wondering on humidity level.
    Time in incubator?
    Really any info I can get even after hatching. I have 12 eggs.
    My incubator is a simple one I think but it’s large so holds 60 full sized eggs it an electrical thermostat incubator JN2-60 it’s the octagonal one.

    Any adice or info would be greatly received and thank you in advance

    I can't help as it's been decades since I incubated anything. I just wanted to show off two of mine so this thread will bump up the list.
