it is day 17 in my homemade incubator, temperature is good, humidity could be better 50%, i figure that's not bad considering a 20-25% ambient. still trying to get humidity up though. i put an aquarium air stone in one of my water jars to create bubbles, brought humidity up from 35% to 50%, i might put in a larger stone in my bigger water pan. the so called "lock down" day is tomorrow. i have 30 eggs in the incubator. i will post again friday to update how the hatch is going. i can't wait, similar feelings like waiting to go to hospital to see my children born, but definately not as major, nothing compares to that, we are just getting a little anxious. we have a yorkie that might be pregnant as well, that'll be fun too. But what i am the most anxious for right now is my son to come home from afghanistan, he is a marine, due back in the U.S. November 28.
