I am SO angry right now! I just got home from my daughter's birthday party. We were gone for 3 hours at least. Before we left, I candled some eggs in the cabinet bator and set some more and then we left. The one time I don't watch it go back up to temp, it fails! It was down to about 70-75 for AT LEAST 4 hours! The auto water system failed and spilled everywhere. And NOW I can't get the thing to heat back up! It's hovering at 90. I took all the eggs out. Everything that I just set earlier went back in egg cartons and somehow I managed to fit 80 some turkey eggs in my little hova bator which still isn't up to temp because the eggs are all cold. I'm not a happy camper right now. I'm hoping that the spoiled water somehow impeded this thing. I have it running right now with no water in it and the heat cranked up to try to dry it out. The temp is slowly climbing back up. I just hope I don't lose all these poults!
I'm sorry for the rant. I'm just so frustrated right now
Pebbles is officially broody. I took the eggs she was sitting on today and gave her 4 from the bator earlier today. They're due to hatch next week. Think she'll be ok getting babies so soon? She just went broody a couple days ago.Edited by Auroradream26 - 1/30/16 at 6:20pm
