    So I ordered hatching eggs from Papas poultry which I'm guessing should be here sometime next week. Haven't heard exactly when he expects to ship just what I assume. Tonight I decided to clean out the incubator and where the fan is located the plexi glass has a big gap so when you look through the incubator your actually looking through two pieces of plexi glass which helps house the fan and other electronics. I got the bottom and top cleaned and decided for a little while tonight to run the fan with the top opened some to help dry the foam. Anyhow when I put the lid on I noticed some bugs had made their way into the gap between the plexi glass. They are dead but I don't know how to get them out and what effect this will have on my eggs (thinking heated rotting bugs)?!

    I hit submit to soon....any ideas? Im nervous to unscrew the fan and other electronics afraid I won't get them back just right or tear up something. But feeling like the dead bugs could pose a threat to the eggs.
