    Hey I was just wondering how peat moss works for incubating eggs? I'm sure someone here has used it lol. What is the preferred media for everyone? I'm just thinking about it.

    PS. New incubator me and hubby made today is up and running haven't moved any eggs inside yet. It's still in the testing phase lol. But it's looking good [emoji4]

    I've used pet moss to cover the eggs so the humidity. I have not used it exclusively.

    That's what I've seen in videos on YouTube everyone mostly covered them with it. Did it keep the humidity in there well? I'm sure it kept it alot moister.
