I am attempting to incubate chooks, guineas and ducks in the same incubator at the same time, (yes I enjoy a challenge) and was looking for specific information to (hopefully) enable me to do so.
While searching various links from this site, I revisited one I had found while looking for basic information a couple of years ago.
As I hadn't seen this particular link on here anywhere, (there are others to other pages on this site) I thought it may help someone else as there are often questions asked re incubation which could be answered here........

Good luck with your hatches :biggrin:

It does presume that you're setting viable, fertile eggs from a healthy breeder flock.

Critically, it doesn't mention nutrition, health & fertility of the breeder flock prior to the egg being produced.

For those who want all their incubator readings "just so" it's a good resource & a great starting point for settings.

I don't agree with the humidity needing to be "just so" though... as has been borne out on a myriad of BYP threads over the years.

Winglet I recon you've :nail: Totally agree, Humidity is a little more important that the article states....but it is good information even so. It may have sorted my problem...will know in about 21 days as I set the incubator last night and now can feel a draft coming out of the vents where before I could feel nothing even with wet hands.

Thanks for that Lucky 992.
I will have a proper look at the site (have just glanced at it as I am on night shift this week) later on. Much appreciated as it was becoming frustrating banging my scone against a proverbial brick wall.
