    Thats a bunch of poop! ;) Bad news on incubator eggs.. the water reservoir overfilled and went into the fuse box for the turner and it burnt out. The turners light on the front has been flashing for the past 2 days and I didn't think about it looked in the manual to find out why and sure enough it was burnt. Replaced it and had to dry it out first! Sure enough it works again! I'm praying their still alive!
