    @simplestupid must say I am glad to see this on here! glad to see you do the switch out! [​IMG] well done!



    yer good chicky.... bleach killed it... they get all stained up

    Dax so when the light goes on, does the element get hot at all? so you know if the wafer is working? if its not the wafer its the element.

    the coolers I use lightbulbs.... not sure on that, see what ron said about replacement parts... if your thermostat is working and it has a fan you have almost all the makins for a coolerbator sweeets.... see my signature....

    Omg. So i was turning the eggs for the second time today, and my cat literally tripped against the side and sent them all jumbly waumpus and into each other. No cracks or anything, but my heart fell into my socks pretty much. All i can do is wait till candling on day 7. My 7 year old daughter is devistated, as she witnessed it happen and she has wanted salmon faverolles since we got birds two years ago. Im not too keen on the state of my shipped eggs anyway, as i initially had them in the turner (after resting upon arrival) then took them out to do it by hand and found one had adhered via a leak onto the side if the turner. Old eggs? Maybe. All were uber porous but intact. I cracked it completely open upon getting it unstuck and the yolk was at half mast vs totally plump or totally flat. Gah. Sorry, i just had to rant!

    So the shipped egg saga continues - I am so disappointed right now :( I spent a good amount of money on eggs to have them to put in the incubator today, I called and they haven't even shipped yet!!!

    Awesome "Leonardo"! GREAT job at labeling!! I didn't label my first 14, but the 7 I just added are simply labeled HAL. I didn't think to label them as I collected them. Maybe I should start?

    At what point do I need to get them into the incubator to still be part of the hatch a long?

    Let me know when you get them and we will work something out.

    You are still part of the hatch a long though!
