    My hatching eggs are at the P.O.

    How long should they set before going in the incubator?

    I'll check on the instructions, but anyone wanna give me a run down - do I just plug in the turner and bator and that is it?

    Where do I put the hygrometer? What should it read? lol

    Do I do anything to the incubator settings?

    Also, when should I candle? What do I do that with?

    Times like these. . . I miss my dad greatly. . .he set eggs like an old timer (he would be 88 were he alive now) in his gas oven with
    just the pilot light on and turning them by hand and ALWAYS hatch almost every egg. . .shew!
