    I always hatch multiple types of birds at the same time. Like yesterday and today I have guinea keets, turkey poults and peachicks all in the same hatcher. I run my hatcher at 98.5 degs and 70% humidity but incubate everthing at 99.7 at 49% humidity. It has worked well for me but I bet you get many other suggestions. I was 4 for 4 on peachicks this time. The last one to hatch today was my lone buford bronze egg! I want it to grow and feather out tomorrow! [​IMG]
