    Thank you! Most of the eggs were pretty clean. This was the worst one. There were 2 others that were dirty, but not too bad.
    Thank you so much again! I will try that to clean them off. You guys are fantastic! Thank you for all the help!

    [​IMG] Yes definitely post pics of your bator! Egg turner...I'm envious! [​IMG] I plan on making one out of a clear plastic storage container. It'd be large enough to fit egg turners. [​IMG]

    My incubator is...(just one moment while I measure it....[​IMG] Everyone take my tools here. [​IMG]) Found it!

    It's 17 inches long x 8.5 wide by 12 high at the bottom. I run two 25 watt chandelier bubs. The idea of having two lights is that if one does burn out...all is not lost. And I've actually had that scenario happen. I chose chandelier bulbs because they're skinnier. I did try 2- 40 watt bulbs, but I found the temp jumped a bit too high after the lights cut out. The bator's in the laundry room that I've kept at 74. (It's a cold room when the wind blows and is heated separate from the main house.) I use a 6 inch regular fan I bought from Walmart and I use a wafer thermometer which sits on a small box. High tech...NOT! [​IMG] I've got baking racks in the bottom covered by a perforated plastic sheet used in crafting. (More high tech) [​IMG]
