    subtract one vote for the range "20-35%". I didn't see it was asking about ducks before I voted. [​IMG]

    Is that what you use for chickens? Just curious...

    I do. I'm a student of the "dry incubation method" then up the humidity as high as I can at lockdown...

    I've been thinking about trying the dry method... Do you weigh your eggs?

    No I don't. Haven't done enough hatches to learn that much yet.

    Hi Kathy, wanted you to know that I just got done using the dry incubation method. Started with 33, 5 were sterile, 2 early quitters and one quit during the hatch. I did not weigh my eggs nor did I mark mark the air cells except for this one at lockdown. The room humidity was 60% throughout the entire incubation and at lockdown I raised the humidity to 70% according to the hygrometer seen in the picture. So, 25 out of 33 is real good in my book.
