HI, im new to backyard chickens new to chicken keeping and new to incubation. I inherited a really old incubator...a "still air" styrofoam hova bator. Ive had it plugged in for a couple hours now trying to check temps etc...while im online deciding what eggs to order. It seems that the bator is running high, like "cook the eggs" high 115 degrees or so. im not sure how to work the temp controller. im debating whether to put this on ebay and just get a new one with an egg turner and all the bells and whistles. I DO NOT WANT TO SCREW THIS UP. I dont take disappointment well. Yes i know, im aware that in raising any kind of animals there will be letdowns and errors. im just highly addicted to the feel of success.
Anyhow! HI all from Euclid, OHIO!
