    so i knew i had roosters they are about 23 weeks old but what i didnt know is that they were fertilizing my hens eggs!! (they are older then the roos ) So my husband is set on eating the roosters and when i found this out I ran around my house and put together an incubator and set 12 eggs . I have to get some chicks before he eats the roos right?! Well the incubator is working! I used stuff i had laying around the house LOL [​IMG] and i have the temp at 100 and the hummidity at 60 i was very surprised i know the temp should be 99.5 but i cant get to picky here lol i guess time will tell if it all worked they should hatch around jan 2-3 rd

    Good luck with your hatch!!! I always try to keep my humididty around 45 and not let it get to 60 until lockdown. Sounds like you were in a rush, lol. It won't hurt for the short time.
