Oh my gosh! This morning I woke up(day 18 of my hatch) and found my LG had lowered its temp to 98.2 overnight! This is just becoming to much for me :eek: So, my next question to the list...... How low can my temp go before I have problems? I know at 11pm the temp was 101.6F .

Poor chicks if they survive they are fighters. The temp has been up to 103.5 and down to 97.8 on that water wiggler. Do they have a chance now???? I am so close but so far.......
Thanks again,
Stephenie

PS: I tried candling but can't see much other then an air sack now. Is that normal?

I know that too low is much better than too high. Try to keep the water wiggler temp around 100..not much higher. Higher for a short time won't really hurt anything. Hang in there..you're almost through. Oh, did anyone tell you the hardest part is just coming up..the hatch. Remember to sit on your hands and let the babies do their thing. If all of your setting are good, the less interference the better the hatch results. Good luck with your hatch! Can't wait to see your baby chick pics.

My temps have been dropping in the still air on my hatches also, i woke up to 96.3 one morning and a few 97.s. Its very frustrating. I wonder if i should wrap the bator at night to help prevent some heat loss?

Do you keep the incubator in the house at room temperature? That is the only way they really keep good temps.

Hi Jody,
Of course I keep my precious little bator in the house

lol, and I stare at it every chance I get(as if something might just surprise me and be in there early:lol: ). I just can't stand this stress. And to think if it works I want to get some Icelandic Chickies to hatch. What am I thinking???
