    @cutiekk17 Not sure this is going to tell you anything more than you already know, he doesn't show how to reset anything. :/ But, here it is anyway.





    Also, here is that convert, from C to F... I know it says 39.5 is 103..but that's where I kept mine, did great like I said, great hatch! If you feel like your eggs are feeling too warm, then go down to the 38.5.

    I have had silkies in the house before. I didn't mind though, they are so sweet and well behaved [​IMG]

    Gonna set my eggs a few hours late because my bator usually starts hatching chicks the afternoon of day 20.
    Good luck everybody
