This is my first time hatching eggs! I'm a teacher and we are going to do this in my 2nd grade classroom. I have poured over all the information on this website for days now. I used all the "homemade bator" pages to help me, primarily Miss Prissy's. Thanks to you all! I do have a few chickens and we raised them and hatched eggs growing up so I' know a tiny bit. At this point I'm trying to get the temp regulated. I have a pc fan, 40w bulb and water heater thermostat. I also have 3 thermometers in the bator. I'm trying to get it adjusted to stay at 99. I just checked it and all three thermometers were at 101. So I just lowered the thermostat a bit. I have my eggs. I ordered them and they all arrived safe and sound. They are waiting in a closet that is at 60 degrees. Hopefully I can get the temp to stabilize. I need to put them in on Tue. so that they will hatch while the kids are at school. So again, a HUGE thank you to all the info and humor that I've found here. This is by far the BEST website I've found. So wish me luck! I don't want to let my kiddos down.
