I just turned the incubator off and am going to clean it tomorrow, think I will be able to shake it down?
Interesting. Not sure if you can shake it down or not, but worth a try. Maybe Friday or some of our clinical people can answer that. I really haven't stressed too much about it. Turning a little more blue, I guess, and just letting it do its thing.
So did you just finish a hatch?? And?????

Calls and poults are doing great... fat, sassy and causing trouble, lol...
Yeah, we're glad we have unlimited data here, but he's way out there...
He is the best friend I have ever had, hands down...
Agree with multiples, I should probably stick another in there too, but I only have the spot check and the unit right now.
Great on the lings and poults!
And you're so lucky to have K so close by. Lucky girl, lucky guy!

I guess where the pump just adds a drop here and there, it doesn't seem like that much water, but maybe it would fill up a sponge. But I dont use any paper towels or sponges at all. Just the humidity pump thingy.
