The wafer is there to kick off the heat strips if the temp tried to get above 102. *unless its been tampered with*

 

Even if the electronic thermostat was bad---the wafer should be able to control the temp.


I did what you said! The wafer thermostat is reading 101.8 to 102.4 and keeps going up and down is that close enough or should I lower it more before I mess with the black nob? I am checking temp with a spot check therm on the top shelf is that correct? Thank you for your help!!!

Sounds like you got it right----now decrease the black knob a little at the time till it gets to 99.5 to 100. If it does that-----you ready to get some eggs into it.

Congrats. I can't wait until that is a sight at my house.

Howdy to all. Dark Cornish LF,  Cornish bantams, a few guineas and whatever else the coons didn't eat. Plus my quarter horses and Zebu. Have a DELIGHTFUL day.

       Every day above ground is a good day. Some people didn't get that privilege this morning.

Good luck, lockdown is the worst the waiting and constant staring through that window for any sign of hatching ... :barnie

 

But once those eggs start rocking and you see the pip and hear the peeps it's awesome :celebrate

I noticed that the chicks tend to go to the egg that is hatching next, these two are cuddling up to the egg that is hatching next.

 

Does that always happen?
