Hello experts!

I am an incubator neophyte and I got my first batch of eggs. On Thursday, December 30th, at approximately 3 PM I loaded up 120 Bobs! So far, we are running beautifully, 99.7 degrees and a humidity of 45. They are in a Hova-Bator 1602 and I installed the fan and turner.

My question is when should I lock them down for hatching and what should I bump the humidity to at lockdown? I am guessing lock down would be the night of January 19th and humidity should be around 70? Thank you all for your help!

Bobs take about 23 days to hatch, give or take a day. So lock down on day 20. On that day, up the humidity to 70% and keep your fingers crossed! Good luck with your bobs!

Oh, and I would up your present humidity to about 55% to 60%.
