    I imagine that I have answered this question at least 100 times... but here goes

    Because we are HELPFUL here at BYC.

    What type of incubator do you have?

    Still air: (no fan) Temp 100.5-101 humidity 35% for days 1-18, bumped up to 65% to 70% from day 19 to hatch.
    Forced air: (fan) Temp 99.5 Same humidity as above.

    There is a sticky up at the top of this section with loads of information on it. Go read it, it's a great education.

    Good luck!
