    Homemade incubator running like a champ. After I replaced the light bulb. Forgot to tell better half not to turn them and when she did did it to fast and dumped a few eggs cracking 3 of them. Already I see how this is gonna go.

    Congrats on the homemade bator! Sorry about the "help" problems. I'm sure she meant well. [​IMG]

    Someone on another thread taped up a cracked egg and got a healthy chickie. [​IMG]

    Think she was pretty sure the membrane was undamaged.[​IMG]

    Good luck![​IMG]

    Well I was at work so I didn't know what was going on. The good thing is I can replace the three today [​IMG] (Atleast I hope).

    I didn't get mad lol it's going to happen. I have the hens so eggs aren't a problem. This is also why I'm doing a test run before I buy hatching eggs or try to hatch a more expensive breed egg [​IMG] .

    I'm using this practice to get it down for next spring.
