I need to know what temp and humidity and lockdown
I kept my temperature at 99.5 degrees, and for humidity I kept it between 50% and 60%. I took my turner out at day 25 of incubation, and then increased the humidity to about 80%. I kept the incubator in lockdown from the time I took the turner out, until I knew for sure that all off the eggs were done hatching, which was 2-3 days after the poult pipped through the egg.
Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I use still air incubators, and run them at 101.5 F for both chicken and turkey eggs. I keep the humidity around 30-35% and up it to around 65-70% at lockdown. I also take my turkey eggs out of the turner at day 25, but I move them to another incubator to hatch.
