    Well my incubator been acting up lately and yesterday I noticed the temp. gauge reading at a 103 degree, I have a fan in there. Anyway, so I opened up the door to cool it off a bit. My question is will the eggs be ok after being in a 103 for about 3 hours?

    They should be fine! I have had temp spikes of 105 and them make it. Now my friend had a spike of 113!!!! No need to say they did not make it. At 103 I think they will be just fine.

    Well since that happened I got it stable at 99.9 degrees, finally! But thanks, I needed the reassurance. I got 17 eggs cookin right now and don't want to lose any if I can help it.

    Yeah the blue ones are nice, I use to have them but I like the green/black one better there more entertaining than the blues ever could be. Oh especially when breeding time occurs. They battle for there territory and mate, its better than TV. [​IMG]

    I believe it's better than TV! What do you feed them? (sorry; don't mean to hijack the post...just curious).

    I give them fruitflies, larvas and sometimes ant in small amounts (non-biting) kind.
