My hatch is ending!
The three eggs that remained, one has a pip, two eggs still have movement, I will have to SPOT check the cabinet again and see whats going on this is the second time I have two late eggs. I moved most brahma to the brooder now as well, but I think the majority hatched early this am as they are really wet yet. So with these last three eggs I still can say I love the cabinet but have to figure out if I really am having a cold spot! ughhhh
Once home I checked my coolerbator tempeture.
Turned it down a tiny bit. Nothing.
Steady on at 100.4 for 2 hours
So I nudged it down a tiny bit more again.
Tomorrow morning maybe I will see a change.
Those water bottles really stabilize things.
Got my thermostat in the the mail today!! Was at Walmart and they have ONE of that cooler in stock! I REALLY cannot afford to purchase it just yet, but it was SOOOOO hard not to!!! Lol Good thing my bf was there to drag me away!! It was nice to get to pull it out and see it in person. He was like "holy crap! That's huge!" LMBO!
Awesome, did you check every inch temps in the egg trays?
This morning, 8 hours later, it balanced out at 99.3.
I'm not touching it....
not to throw a wrench, I typically run 100 - 100.5 as I have found it gives me better hatch rates just a tad higher and less messy stinky hatches. but thats my prefs, and I know my thermometers and thermostats.
He he he
If you are sure about this I will TRY to bump it up to 100-ish
It's just on this stupid thermostat, it's REALLY a tiny adjustment to get it right.
glue a plastic plate to it, the larger diameter will allow for micro adjustments
