    Hehe,

    Way ahead of you Reb. Saw you lower the heating element. Quite a few pips going on now. [​IMG]

    By-the-way, what does F.R.E.D. stand for?

    FRED stands for F#$%&@$ Ridiculous Electronic Device or Fairly Reliable Electronic Device. It was a term my auto tech collage instructor gave the computer brain in newer cars. What FRED stood for changed according to who was in ear shot... (His wife)

    I usually wait till all have hatched that I expect to, an dried off or 72 hours from the time the first hatched. Which ever comes first.

    Yea, that's the side of a turning tray. It will come back in to view in a little while an I think you can see some of the egg trays in camera 4 when it does.


    Egg on the right of camera 2 is just about out.
