I am using a 25 watt light buld for heat and am going into lockdown now. Raised the wire rack with 2 pcs of 1x1 wood strips and have 3 soaked sponges under the wire. Replaced eggs on wire and sealed up the holes. What if the temp. starts going high like 105 and up? Do I dare try to lower it? I have no idea if any eggs are alive or not.13 eggs 2 are sultun and the others cochin, wwyandotte, dominque and buff brahma. And daddys are cochins. When I candled the eggs I could not see any light area outside of the end air pocket. Are there any pics of candled eggs at 18 days? Still need to rebuild another incubator and return the Little giant to TSC. The controls are a mess and readings all over the place. Son in law stopped home at 7 pm and had 3 beautiful thick styro boxes. Just like Christmas! All different in size. I have my fan from old pc and will pick up water heater temp. thing tomorrow, have wire and cord. Not sure what else I will need.Thanks for any advice you can send my way.
UNSEAL THOSE HOLES! The chicks need oxygen. As for the temperature, don't let it get to 105° . Lower temperatures are better, 96 and 97 even. But not 104, 105.
