Put 11 into lockdown.
Will post a pic later. But phone is tempremantal and can only do it on wifi.
Well I finally got the courage up to write a note to the people I bought my beautiful black Americauna "infertile" rooster from. It is hard, because I don't want to insult at all, yet I would want to know if it was from me. I was very kind and just explained, and asked if they have any thoughts. I'm hoping they will stand behind it, or at least let me get another. I have owned him for a month now, and have tried everything, but he just won't do his job. When I bought my trio, they had him in an isolated pen by himself, and his eyes looked a little droopy, but he was beautiful show quality, and I figured he would be fine. I do wonder though if he was separated out due to some issues. These people are professionals, who have won many awards, and I'm sure they will understand. I'm bummed though because the best part of hatching season for this year's fair is already over. I would be happy with getting some hatched for next year though. But, I can't do it unless I have a fertile rooster.
I also went into school and checked on my incubator. I ended up moving my eggs back to the mini advance before leaving school yesterday, because the humidity was fine when I took the eggs out and let it sit for a while. Sure enough, the humidity was back up again this morning. I have a paper towel under the eggs, and that was pretty wet too, and there is condensation around the outside of the incubator. The cracked egg is in there (membrane is not broken) so I do wonder if that made the humidity go back up. I did take a paper towel and sop up all of the water from one side of the reservoir, so there is less water surface area, and hopefully that will bring it down a bit. I am going to just let them in there until this afternoon and see what happens. I will check again later today.
Anyone who uses the Brinsea mini, do you get a lot of condensation during lockdown? It is even in the little tube where the electrical seems to be on the outside edge? That seems strange to me.
I would really like to save up for a cabinet incubator. Are there any that you experts would recommend? I really like my Brinsea octagon, and would consider the cabinet model, but they seem quit pricey for me, and I saw others like a Sportsman for a lot cheaper. Any thoughts? I'm definitely not purchasing right now, but want to start looking around while saving up.
Emu!!!! I am sooo excited for you!!!
now i need to finish my catch up reading ....
