I for one don't mind . if you feel the need to share and if it makes you feel better . why not . when I get sad about life . I try to focus on the most pleasant thought I have stored away .It helps . I really must feed my chickens .btw that ain't it
It's a wise husband who will take the time to listen to his wife vent without trying to "fix it". More often than not, women just want to share their feelings, know that they've been heard, and then move on to the next subject. When a husband listens, the time he took to do so will come back to him 100 fold in bonus points! Glad that feeding the chooks is not the high light of your life!

If I had caught it I would have helped. I checked humidity one day before I went to town. Was gone an hour and it dropped 30% and my chick died while unzipping. Its in a back room with no drafts or air conditioners, but it stays comfortable in there because we leave the door open. So I'm not sure what's going on with it. All I know is I don't like this batir , I'd rather buy a new one that I know I didn't leave eggs in ect...he just really didn't take care of it. My nephew told me he would leave the dead chicks in it too...so yeah not paying 650$ for this thing...wish I had known that in the first place.
I agree with you. You don't want a bator that has been a cess pool of death before. Get rid of that thing. Also, just b/c someone adjusts it, that doesn't mean that it does not need to be adjusted again. Bators are finicky, and some may need to be adjusted between every batch set.
