So I just purchased 25 Easter egger hatching eggs from Meyer hatchery and they will be here in 10 days. This will be my fourth incubation and my hatch rates have improved but are still bad. Since these eggs cost a pretty penny i was hoping for some tips. I use the Little Giant incubator from the Miller manufacturing company and the temp i use is 99.5 with humidity of 50 for the first 18 days. I use a second temp/humidity gauge, i place it on the egg Turner next to the eggs. I read that it's best to not candle for the first 10 days, so i will be doing that. Any other tips or tricks?
