    Thanks Sally [​IMG] Swamped with animal work here but am trying to participate the best I can. For some reason BYC notifications aren't coming to my email.... trying to figure out why. All my settings on here appear to be right. So, forgive me of any slow responses!

    Do you have a secondary thermometer in the incubator to double check the temp?

    I've never got the hang of the feather sexing thing. I can never remember which way it is.

    Then there is the thing about fast feathering and slow feathering, and I'm not sure if NN are fast or slow or maybe some of both.
