Incubator Temp

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have had 6 eggs in a homemade incubator for 10 days and everything has been looking great. But I was tired last night and asked my husband to check the temp before bed and make sure it was at 100. Somehow he heard 110 sad.png so he adjusted it and the incubator was at 110 for about 6 hours. What are my chances of having a sucessful hatch now?

Your chances are iffy. This excellent read should answer your questions.

It's nice to delegate but without foolproof equipment, you just can't trust anyone but yourself.

Thank you. I'm so upset with myself for not doing it myself. Any recommendations on a good incubator I can purchase for hatching just a few eggs?

The Brinsea Mini-Advance is really nice.  It incubates 7 eggs and has a automatic turner.  Just be sure to calibrate it against 2 or 3 independent thermometers, as mine was off by 1 degree.  This is necessary for any incubator.

Okay, thank you!
