    Idk. Look at the threads. I know they were just talking about it. Try incubator or chicks or breeding threads.

    I dry hatch. Put the eggs in the incubator add water at lock down day 18. At that point I try to keep humidity 60% - 80%.

    I don't know what my hurry was because I can't hatch any until after winter here and it's not even fall yet lol, sometimes I get a project in my head and I have to build it that day lol

    You can test your incubator. Plenty of time for a practice run.

    Plug it in, set the temperature, then let it run for 21 days. See if it will maintain temperature control.
