I'll just repost my question then. :)
Good evening everybody. (It's midnight here in Norway)
I just finished wireing up my styrofoam incubator thermostat that I bought on Ebay. The instructions were really poor. The text was barely visible and some of it was missing too. So the settings part is kind of melting my brain here. And now that I have finished connecting it, I really want to get it up and running, like yesterday! I was wondering if anyone of you had the same one, and maybe could give me a few hints? I tried searching here before I ask.. Promise!
The model is a XD-8888 The picture is from Ebay.
Thank you in advance!post #48944 of 1576312/7/16 at 3:47pmpost #48945 of 1576312/7/16 at 3:47pmpost #48946 of 1576312/7/16 at 3:47pmpost #48947 of 1576312/7/16 at 3:47pmpost #48948 of 1576312/7/16 at 3:48pm
Daggummit! I came in from successfully moving the Naked Neck girls into the new coop (the rooster will have to wait until I can get him tonight), and was looking at the incubator, which was steady at 98.5 and 65%. I decided to top off the distilled water in the fill cup (on the outside). Then as I was watching, the humidity began to drop. Over a number of minutes. Ambient humidity is 31%, all I can think is that the incubator got stressed (but that shouldn't happen). There is a very very faint whining noise coming from one side now.
I found a clean unused sponge (miracle) and cut into pieces, wet, and put in a little custard cup and put it in there. I tried to be quick to get it in. (Alas, things are a little crowded in there now - will this be ok?). I also put bowls of hot water around the vents to try to increase the humidity around the incubator (not sure if that'll do anything).
Back up to humidity now. Guess I'll be watching this like a hawk much more than I thought I'd have to with a "fully automatic" incubator.
Should I try to up the setting to 70%? Any benefit in that?
