With the Spot Check, its so sensitive, be sure you don't have it near one of the intake holes. According to the insert with the thermometer, intake ventilation can really affect it. And I assume you don't have it touching anything. I found that even masking tape affected it in my old bator. The whole stick needs to hang free. I taped the wire to the outside to hold it in place.
I have it hanging over the eggs and then I just kind of move it around and it goes all over the place. I think I'll just stick with a calibrated glass thermometer. It freaks me out every time I see an out of range number!!
Isn't that side air cell crazy? I've never seen an egg laid like that. I think byc910 had one like that. It'd definitely not developing but cool to see in person.

I just want to get back home before it starts.
We were supposed to get it and then the report kept changing as the storm moved south. I'm happy we are not getting it. I'm sure we will before the winter ends. The kids are disappointed though. But, it looks like you're happy about it. Get home safe and then enjoy it!

I was going to multi quote, but I'll just say it now. I actually went to bed right after that picture last night. There were 3 in there when I left for work this morning. Two were fluffed up, and adorable
I'm sure there will be pics later this afternoon or tomorrow
can't wait to see more pics!
I woke up to the exact same! 2 fluff balls and 1 that had just pushed out. Caught it just in time. 3 more pips. I moved the fluffy ones over to the brooder. Checked the eggs really quick. Looks like 1 quit. I still see lots of blood vessels but no draw down, at all. The rest look like they are about to internally pip.
