I have a lot of newbie questions that I really couldn't find the answers. If anyone can help I'd appreciate it. I have eggs coming this week, hopefully! It's a random assortment of 24 eggs from 12 breeds that I got online and they will be shipped. I am aware that the hatch rate of online chicks are around 40%. And I'm ok with that or less as long as its not my fault if they die! I know I have a lot of tears ahead of me, but I want to give the little babies the best chance. Ok so heres the questions: 1. How often do I candle? And are LED flashlights too hot when candling? 2. I have a styrofoam incubator with water wells, but can't get the humidity above 30% with the wells filled. 3. My thermometer/hygrometer is digital and tall but thin. Should I have it standing up or laying down to get a more accurate temp? 4. I saw some people mentioned vaccinating chicks, should I and how do I go about it? 5. Really stupid question, but what do you mean by pip? Is that a sound or a crack in the egg. 6. Some say let the eggs rest 12 hours after the eggs arrive and some say 24 hours...which is it? 7. Any other random advice? 8. When the chicks are here and I have them in a box, do I need to move to pen or huge box when they're older? I love this forum, its the best idea ever!
