Anybody HOTOUT there ????
Another box came WHOO HOO agan...some of my LO's
. Had them put ice packs in with allmy eggs Hope it helps.
Read an article here about cold and heat on eggs.... Called "What if the Power goes Out? VERY interesting. Hope the ice pack didnt bring them down to freezing at first as it can killeggs. ..but some can make it so they say. Said over 104.4 eggs will die.
Heck i thought it was 102!!! Claims 100 is the perfect temp .l Wonder whiy then the bator company set this new bator at 99.5? think it is.Well better safe i guess
The more i read the more i think this is SOOO tricky and wonder how i will get a chick. Also of interest was an article that said letting the incubator go down in temp for an hour -6 hours!!! (REALLY 6!!) can be beneficial on the eggs b/c the hens get off the nest for periods of time too and the universitys controlled test showed better hatch rates (by a little) with low temps at times..
I would never have thought that opening the bator the first 18 days to candle eggs i guess is a-ok In fact MORE than a ok.!!
But i am just READING dont say DO IT to anyone.
