    This is my first attempt to hatch chickens. I have 7 Millie Fleurs in the bator. I want to check with you to see if i have this right. Today at 5 pm is a full 18 days. At noon i will put the eggs in the hatcher and raise hunidity to 65 percent. Is that high enough. Also to keep the humidity up can i keep both red plugs in if i need to. I dont want them to sufficate. I have a LG forced air. I also put a wash cloth in the hatcher to help with the humidity if need be. I will need to do this again on sunday with the other 2 bators that have pheasant eggs in them. Any thing else i need to know or do. Thanks Linda

    It sounds like you have it well under control.
