    My DH won 2 different bids on ebay for 10 americana's and the other for 6 RIR's. The americanan's got to us in 3 days so after letting them sit for 8 hr's we put them in the bator beliving that the RIR's would be here the next day. It took 7 day's for the RIR's to get here!
    My question is, this wednesday we will take the turner out and I will X/O the RIR's. How will the higher temp and higher humid affect the RIR's? They will be 11 day in the bator. Any help or suggestions would be great! Thank you!

    I have in the past left the turner in and took off the some of the racks. I actually do this often. I just let the humidity be, it will go back down shortly. I know that you might not get anyone else saying this, but I have done it.

    Or you could set something up for just the hatching, lots of easy things could be made for just hatching.

    I do it all the time with no issues.

    I leave mine at 100 degrees.
