Maintaining high humidity in an incubator during hatch
Around day 19, when the first
chicks could potentially start to pip, it's time to raise the humidity
in your incubator to 65% or more. High humidity during hatch is
essential to lubricate your chicks as they do the hard work of wiggling
around, pecking their way out of their shells. At the same time,
you need to keep the vent at least a third of the way open because
these hard-working chicks need more airflow to feed their
struggles. But the open vent tends to lower the incubator's
humidity, so that's the solution?
Our chicken waterer keeps chicks healthy from day 1.
