should have brought the bator to work!   "hey, what's that thing in the break room...?!?"

So this is where you disappear to . the pointed end will be clear more than not  . most people look from the top of the egg . so they don't see the pointed end . If the air cells look good and there is not a large amount of fluid between the air cell and the chick . all should be fine . the fluid line should be a very fine line for best hatch results. temperature fluctuations are common in Styrofoam incubators with ceramic filled metal heating elements . sometimes as much as six degrees . but most of the time its more like four degrees  the important thing is that the eggs remain at a constant temperature .  that is why all recommend you take the temperature at the top of the eggs . 

be careful who you trust  believe me   just as sure as you do  the ones you trust the most might. make a fool of you  the road you travel on my be filled with  ruts and holes  careful where you place your feet you might fall and bust your nose .

What a great idea smile.png I have an office too. Probably frowned upon at a hospital though. My eggs are as important as the patients to me. This is life or death here...literally. They might not buy that one wink.png

I told my husband to throw towels/blankets over it and not to touch it. I hope the power at home comes back up before they cool off too much! We have a generator up and running for the fridges, a heat lamp for Fuzzybutt, I don't think they connected the bator tho. Apparently there is a tree down across the drive way so I may not be able to GET home... @Hawk12
Maybe I should come visit you for a while LOL!

ETA: ok the driveway isn't TOO long. but I don't want to leave my vehicle in the road... More trees to crush it down there! Gotta talk my FIL to keeping some large branches for roosts...

Come on over! Headed to N. Spokane. Gotta try to save the babies.

We had 5 trees down on our road in Hayden. My husband and the neighbors had to clear the road so we could get to and from our houses. The storm has caused quite a bit of damage. Glad to hear things are OK in your neck of the woods @firedragon. How about you @Saris?

Yes,it moves like liquid and yolk at the pointed end.About 15 more hours till lockdown.Where I'm at here,we have a tornado watch and flood advisory for two days,I hope our electricity doesn't go out course then I think they really won't make it.
