This was an enail from whizbangpluckers yahoo group. I thought it would be useful to post here.

OK I decided to answer all of you on this site at once..

I will type up the instructions and then submit them here..

In the meantime you have to get a good thermometer (one only,, we do not take two and average the temps..)

You will also need a good hygrometer..
I have three digital ones .. they are all good and cost about $8.oo each.. one I bought at Walmart..

first step is to remove everything from your incubator.. you may leave your turner in if you have one..

put your thermometer and hygrometer into the bator where you will be able to see them through the window..

now remove the plugs from the top of the incubator..Hovabato r and Little Giants have 2 of them.. save the plugs, but you will not need them again until day 18 of hatching chickens..

now with four pieces of duct tape about 16 inches long,, tape the top of the bator to the bottom of the bator running the duct tape along the seam..

this next step might take a day or two//

turn on the bator and bring the temp up to 102 degrees.. DO NOT add any water..
this first step is to bring your humidity down as far as possible.. Most of you should bottom out at 25% humidity...

these instructions are specifically for Hovabators and Little Giants.. the theory works for all incubators.. I have 3 two hundred egg sportsmans that I set up the same way.. (less the duct tape)..

Prior to the sportsmans,
I was running 8 Hova and LG at a time
