Marsh RX Incubator Does Good With Low Humidity Hatch

27 Barnyard Mix Brown Egg Chicks
 

15 Special Breed Chicks
 
On the 19th day 55 eggs were ready for the hatch and 42 completed the hatch with a 76% hatch rate.  Vo-Ag students are enjoying the chicks in the brooders today.  The best part for me is the low humidity hatch was successful.  I added 1/4 cup of water daily to raise the humidity to mid 40% and within 24 hours no water was present in the water channel.  No water was added over the weekends.
