    During the first eighteen days of incubation, what is the incubator temperature at? What about the humidity?

    What is it on lockdown? Is your incubator still air or does it have a fan?

    The temp is right, the Humidity is way to high for setting the eggs......70% is for lock down and hatching eggs....I am no expert but I am hatching eggs......
