    I hope so--it's so small in there--I should've taken the other egg out already--I could tell it wasn't developed right.

    Quote:I just followed the included instructions and kept my house temp around 72 degrees---that was really the only catch---it's so small that outside temp variations really bothered it, but it was stable once I kept the house stable. I put some water in the bottom and turned my 2 eggs 3 times a day. My chick was late, but better late than never!!!!! [​IMG]
