I'm sorry you feel the need to leave this thread.
The sheer size of this yearly hatchalong makes it a challenge to make everyone feel included. Those of us running this hatch (and lots that aren't running it) do our very best to make sure people's questions get answered. I don't see how making people feel welcome is an issue - you can easily scroll past them if you don't want to see them. Again, we have hundreds of people all set to hatch at the same time. It's not easy and towards the end, we are ready to pull our hair out. (or at least I am)
Good luck to you.
@NTBugtraq dont leave just pop on when you can!! ask if you are wondering whats going on! thats all! I will imagine with most of the incu friends thread peoples here this is gonna get crazier than my thread, so apply the same hop on and off when you can rules! we are all friends and comfy with comfy comes chatter! and its all good! And the first post will always get updated for you too!

The bottom drops down for lockdown. The left side holds the "hen" (light/heat which plugs in to a thermostat, fan, water underneath grate for humidity). The right side is the "nest". Eggs fit in air cell up and a timer turns them or I can switch the turner on and off. The microwave turner is great but made me rethink the process. I had to consider how to turn eggs without damaging sensitive air cells or chalaza. I have insulated/foam that wraps the entire incubator. During test runs the bator holds temp great. The aquarium is great at holding humidity so I don't need much water at all. Everything can be disinfected. For lockdown I'll drop the floor to level position, remover the turner, cover it with shelf liner, and lay the eggs on their sides. The top is a two piece insulated panel so I can open hen or nest without losing too much heat or humidity.
REMEMBER IT??? I AM KEEPING TRACK OF IT LMAO!!! @tao chick
