    That is awful. I didn't hear about it. I live pretty close to you... It rained for a while... No wind

    I saw mine floating/swimming around.
    I probably candled too much then and am trying to limit it to days 7,10,14 and 18 this time.

    ME TOO!
    But I'd much rather see stable temps for 48 hours
    I would be ticked if 36 hours in it spiked!

    :lau so very true.

    Ok, I will look after a full 24 hours. I am a candling addict, so hopefully I see it!! :fl

    I would. Give them better odds of firming up. Even if they look good, they are probably a tiny loose. I don't turn shipped eggs for 48 hours. The detached air cells you might want to go 3+ days without turning. They are really hard to hatch.

    I love my Coolerbator that Sally Sunshine/Rush Lane Poultry helped me make.
    But I am leaving when the eggs are setting and wont be able to turn them.
    I COULD take it with me, I have an Inverter...
    But I would be ticked if someone slammed on the brakes.......
    So I got a 2362N
    Forced fan manual wafer with turner
    But I dont have quail rails
    Not sure how that ones gonna work out..

    That's the spirit!
    You have some time to get rails. They pop right in to replace the other rails.
