    I have not had a whole lot a luck with this which I think is due to the lg but they are in a forced air hovabator to hatch. I'm still waiting on my 1588, I ordered over 4 weeks ago. First I ordered on ebay with double supply as a buy now and they never shipped my product said it would take 3-4 weeks. So after some rude communication on their part I cancelled and I ordered from cutler and they put me on back order too. They are due a shipment this week maybe I will have it by the time my next ones are suppose to hatch.
    Anyways they are at about 100 degrees, my humidity is a little high at 68% but I just took out the water rag I had and opened a vent. I will now sit on my hands and not open. I swear that is the hardest part.

    Hi Equine Chick, I talked with Cutler on Friday and placed an order. They were out of stock on the 1588, but said their truck was loaded and leaving Georgia that afternoon. She said, they will ship my order on Monday if all goes well.

    I hope I do tonight! It's hard sitting on your hands, but you're doing what's best for the babies, just remember that.
