    I have only 2 brown eggs and the one was cracked. When I candled it to fix it, it's not just cracked...it's more like smashed. I used my fastest drying top coat. (thanks for that tip you guys!) I bet 99.9% it won't develop...but I sure hope it isn't going to ooze. [​IMG]



    Can we really include a few more?? My chickens are so, SO evil. They gave me 2 eggs yesterday and 2 more(at last check) today. I think it's really rude that they keep temping us with those eggs!



    Awwww...your chicky looks just like an angel with wings on the back! . [​IMG]



    I finally took a picture to count my eggs...[​IMG]...and now I've added more.[​IMG]



    That's awesome! [​IMG]


    I'm using four at the moment.[​IMG] Planning on adding/replacing one with an aquarium thermometer. I use mine in different spots to check the temperature just in case.



    NICE!! [​IMG]

    Today is the deadline for adding eggs.

    Yes, add them! They will be a bit behind in hatching but will be fine.

    I have the one probe in the practice golf ball that cuts out the heating element. I just got 2 more thermostats and I am checking out their accuracy. I had 4 total with 3 used just to check temp. The 2 little rectangular units are to check humidity against the round one that was calibrated. The rectangular ones that also show temp in C are reading low. I have changed to one of my new thermostats as they can be set in tenths of a degree where the older ones only to full degrees. I have pulled some of the extras out.

    Huh, good idea!


    Relocated a few eggs from my incubator yesterday evening to please a first time broody. She's going strong so far and even layed one of hers to add to the stash (I stole that one since I don't have a rooster).[​IMG]
