I'm starting to think that I'm just not "ment" to hatch chickens I'm still convinced that there is nothing growing inside my first group of eggs because there is something wrong with that incubator, (after day 1 it jumped overnight to 110 degrees and last night after being consistant for 2 days dropped down to 90 degrees). I got a second incubator yesterday for a dozen new eggs and came in this morning excited that the temp. was right where I left it....only to then notice a huge puddle....the incubator was leaking!! So...the nice 4H woman came and switched the bottom out on that incubator AND left me with their very old incubator heating up as a backup in case I have a problem with this one leaking too. In reading through the site, I have seen a lot of you have not had good luck with Little Giant incubators....that's the type I'm using! However, the other teacher who's also hatching has had great luck....Her eggs look REALLY good (hatch date should be the 28th...same as my 1st set that I don't think I'm getting anything out of...my second set isn't due to hatch until June 10). Am I doing right by keeping the temp. up a little higher because it's a still air incubator? The 4H woman said 99.5 to 100.5....I'm keeping it around 100 to 101 if I can. Making sure the water is always in the bottom. Not opening it unless it's needed, however, will open to attempt to candle next week.
