Still in and looking good

8 EE that are all blue eggs, hopefully they lay true but we will see.
We will see how they look at lockdown but I'm pretty happy at this point.
I love my LG. I will admit I'm guilty of spending more on alterations than the bator itself but was thinking about some of the stuff I've done to mine and thought I would share.
1 bleach seems fine for the bottom portion. My typical routine is soak in straight for 5-10 minutes. Rinse and repeat with a 50:50 bleach water mix, rinse X 2-3 times with water only, allow to sun for 2-3 days and go for it.
2 as I said I have made several alterations but the one I think was most beneficial for bacteria issues was painting the inside of it. Make sure it is a water based paint and it should be fine (test a corner or somewhere to make sure) this made a very easy job of cleaning after hatch and also helped seal the Styrofoam so remnants didn't soak in.
If I had just saved the money I have spent on this thing I could have just bought a nice or built several nice ones. I suppose that's part of the experience though. Hope this helps, let me know if you come up with any specifics that haven't been addressed yet. I saw alot of suggestions on my readback so hopefully you will get it figured out.
