My Incubator 5

  1. storminstaffs
    I have a covatutto 6 egg incubator, not the best but it'll have to do as my parents were very strict in that I don't spend more them £50 on a incubator
    25th August 2010 - I'm setting up my incubator and trying to get the settings right at the moment the temp is okay but the humidity is a little high, i've got till friday to sort that out though.

    I'm going to set my eggs on the 27th august, so hopefully i'll have the current humidity by then.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well nothing came of this incubation and I will be buying a better incubator and trying again early next year hopefully.
