    Wind Storm, Heavy rain, lost power yesterday for 2 hours, probably today again for who knows how long... Not sure a hatchalong is a good idea for me (or anyone within 2 hours of Spokane unless their incubator is chicken... or plugged into a generator).

    Still doing it, but I see bad things happening...

    My Genesis 1588 connects to a car battery. My estimate is that it will run the incubator for two days. Then I can keep it going in the car.

    Since you guys were so helpful with my last question (Thank you!) I actually have 1 more ;) My eggs arrived and are super muddy...they look like mud balls...silly ducks! Should I rinse them off? I tried googleing to no avail. I just got a Brinsea and don't really want to put potentially Bacteria ridden mud balls in there just yet...but I don't want to hurt their chances of making it either. Do you guys rinse your eggs when they look like this....[​IMG]
