Author Topic: Sportsman Incubator Question  (Read 5157 times)
« on: April 28, 2004, 12:29:08 AM »

For those of you sportsmans, I have a question. There are, I think, 4 little holes in the back of the incubator with a cap to open and close them. These are for humidity. My question is how many do you have open and how much are they open? I need the right humidity for quail eggs. I know how much I need but was wondering about the holes in the back. Thanks for the help.

The holes in the back are used to adjust your humidity. If your humidity is to high, open one up a little more. If the humidity is to low, close them a little at a time till you get your humidity set where it needs to be.  It may take you a day or so to get it set correct. Just open or close 1 at a time.
Hope this will help.

My 1202 has three holes at top and three holes at bottom, I have only one hole at top and bottom open a little less than half way right now and it is holding at 60%. Hope this helps.

i dont have a sportsman but my incub. lit said that the bottom hole is used as a exhaust.  as the chick grow inside the eggs they are breathing oxygen and they inturn are creating carbondixide.  which that could lower your % of hatch   good  luck
