We're getting into that time of the year when many of us start setting eggs for spring chicks, so this week I would like to like to hear you all's thoughts on incubation. (I'm going to talk about hatching and afterward next week). Please give me your thoughts and tips on:
- Good incubator recommendations, especially for new hatchers.
- Homemade incubators.
- Selecting eggs for incubating.
- Humidity during incubation - "dry" incubation, what humidity do you incubate at, etc.
- How to handle power outages, temp spikes, and other incubation mishaps, like cracked eggs, etc.
Anything you'd like to add.
