    HELP-my incubator won’t heat!!!!

    Both have what looks like a twin wire going to them, but it’s kind of hard to see that on the black wires copper piece. After I posted the thread, I thought that one of these must be the humidity sensor, but am not sure which one. I’m guessing the little copper looking “stick” may be the...

    HELP-my incubator won’t heat!!!!

    It only has 1 heating element. I had ordered a heating element from 2 different suppliers hoping I’d get one pretty quick as I had a friend that was collecting duck eggs for me, so as soon as the first one arrived, I put it in, which didn’t help, so when the second one arrived, I tried it just...

    HELP-my incubator won’t heat!!!!

    I’ve got one of the China made incubators that I hope someone can help me with. It won’t get hot enough. It won’t get above about 86 degrees. I’ve put 2 brand new heating elements in it but it hasn’t helped a bit. Can you tell me what else I need to look at? It’s like the one in the pic. I don’t...

    Permethrin for flies

    Thank you to all that replied!! We bought some of the bag fly traps (that smell like a corpse 😫) & hung them in a tree that’s outside of the pen as we’ve used them for a few years & have had much success with them, but for some reason they didn’t pull as many flies away from the pen as I was...

    Permethrin for flies

    Even though I’ve kept my coop pretty much clean of chicken poo, we’ve been having trouble with flies the last couple of weeks, so I just stopped & bought some Permethrin. Is there a specific way to mix & spray, or do I just follow the directions on the label? We’ve not had this problem in the...

    Quail eggs. What am I doing wrong?!!!

    I’m not sure how to calibrate - I guess google can step me thru that! I always clean my incubator with a bleach solution after every hatch so there’s no bacteria to do harm. Thanks to everyone for your responses!!

    Quail eggs. What am I doing wrong?!!!

    They’re Bobwhite from our own stock. I put them in the incubator on Saturday, the 3rd of August & they were laid within that week prior to setting them. I don’t know the actual name of my incubator, but it’s a forced air, like the one in the picture, but mine has 2 sections that each hold 48...
