    this is where you're supposed to have a hobby besides hatching eggs. read a book, watch movies, hang out on here. okay none of that works.

    You need a cam in there. It is the best.[​IMG]
    I sit at my desk and watch! Then we rush in to watch first hand!
    Good luck!

    That's a great idea Joe. I have a stiff neck already from craning down to look in those little windows. Heard a bird (outside it turns out) and ran over to listen. I'm a wreck. might be time for a bud light!

    I'm a Bud man myself!
    I have quail hatching now.
    I will post my vids soon.
    It sure does help to have the cam inside the bator.
    A web cam would work. I do CCTV I have cams every were.
    Good luck with your hatch! [​IMG]

    I don't know why you came here asking for help. You'd think everyone would know by now that BYC is not a place for getting your attention off your chickens, whether in the egg or out. Good luck with that one!!!! LOL!!! We're enablers and fellow addicts.......the only answer is to see a psychologist and get a straight jacket.....
