Help with Pro Series Digital model 4259 incubator

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Anyone have one of these? Just bought it.
Can't figure out where to put the water....its leaking like mad out the bottom!!! Help!
Chickens.... ok I've lost count! I used to know it like the back of my hand! But with donated, purchased and stolen(haha) I have no clue at the present time. Many a different breed here now.... plus I've gotten 12 peeps out of a broody hen just this past week! So I'll be in the 40 range! I've got 3 rescue dogs - Bloodhound Georgie, Basset Looee and Beagle/Doxie Bella Luna round out the crew!

Water only goes in the small wells in the center. I made this exact same mistake with my Styrofoam incubator, too. I prefer not to use the wells at all, and put water in small cups--it's easier to regulate the humidity that way.

Have you considered the "dry method" of incubation? 

BTW we'd love to have you join the Syro-bators club. There's a lot of great advice on there already and we'd all love to hear about your hatching adventures/experiences/wisdom. Link is in my signature. :)
