    When I first got on BYC, I wondered why folks kept incubators on all year. After I FINALLY got me temps where I want, I think I'm leaving mine on FOREVER!!! [​IMG]

    Good idea! Styrofoam incubators are a pain to regulate!

    and since it's going to be plugged in and running to keep that stable temp you might as well get your electricity's worth out of it and keep eggs in it all the time...

    Quote:Definitely, with global warming and all you don't want to be wasting any electricity! Hope you have a steady source of hatching eggs [​IMG] If not I bet there are plenty of BYC'ers out there that could help keep you in eggs forever!
