    Temps spiked to 106.7 for an unkown amount of time a couple days ago. Had a couple 104 degree spikes too. So, I am expecting nothing- and anything that hatches will be a surprise. I tried to candle but my light is crappy- and now my turner is making weird noises ( i think I overworked it this summer).

    something similar happened to a friend of mine recently and they had a 50 percent hatch still so u never know. what kind of bator are u using. if your turner is going out u may want to replace the motor instead of buying a whole new turner. just a though its much cheaper and they are easy to install. well good luck i hope u get something to pip sending good vibes ur way. and keeping fingers crossed for you [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    where do you get a motor for a turner I used mine for 2 hatches and it went out on the 3th. I would love to hatch again but my brain refuses to remember to turn eggs like I should.
