Incubator help,

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So as of Yesterday my Shipped incubator finally arrived. In all my years of chicken keeping I have never incubated. Ever. I have only ever used broody hens.The model is a Janoel 12 and I managed to set it up correctly (What a surprise tongue.png)

It seemed to be working fine until today- I faced my first Incubating problem. It is a forced Air incubator set at 37.5 Celsius but suddenly for no reason it has decided to raise to 40.5! What Is up with my incubator? I take the lid of for a bit and it settles down but once I place it back on, the incubator it soon Pipes up to 40.05 :o

Any Advice or help to work my Incubator? (as in keeping the temperature at 37.5?) There are in eggs in there (It had been running fine for 24 hours before I placed them in there) Im afraid now that the eggs are goners (They are right?). I have a plenty of other eggs to place in the incubator once I get this problem sorted out!

Thankyou

Pffft! *Finally* Figured out the problem. Of course it was all Mustangs fault (I bet you can guess that I didn't set it up correctly :hide)

Are you double checking it with a thermometer? Some (a lot, it seems) incubators have to be set at a different number than what you actually want the temp to be.

Japanese, OEG, Sebright, Brahma, Cochin, Rosecomb, and Plymouth Rock bantams.

 

RIR, BR, EEs, GP Hamburg, Ancona, Wheaten/Blue/Splash Marans, Spitzhauben, OE, Speckled Sussex, and Salmon Faverolle

 

Six guineas making a racket dawn to dusk.

 

I just can't get on the "roo" bandwagon...
