    I first had to read the directions over and over, my parents didn't help much. But I got my Little Giant Still Air Incubator to 99.5 and set my eggs lastnight, im so nervous! I put in 5 eggs, 1 Buff Brahma, 2 New Hampshire Reds, and 2 Buff Orpingtons, so im not expecting much. I just really wanted to try it and see how fun everyone says it is. I have a few questions though, I kept the thermometer that it came with, I made sure to check it with a thermometer that I knew was right, should i get a digital one that tells the temp. and the humidity? What's a wiggler?
