    We purchased a Little Giant and a R-Com Mini. I tried candling my eggs, but am having a hard time seeing anything. They are brown Cochin eggs and are expected to hatch in 13-14 days.

    The temp in my LG has been up in down from 97 - 102.9. Any chance any of these will survive and make it. It wasn't low or high for long periods of time, but at least 15-30 minutes (before I noticed it).

    I finally caved in and will be receiving a Brinsea Octagon 20 Advanced, which will be arriving Monday. I'm also expecting Silkie eggs the end of the week. I'm planning on setting up the new bator and moving all the eggs in the LG over. Do any of my eggs in the LG have a chance of making it or should I just start over and hope for the best in my R-Com Mini?

    Yes the eggs will hatch. No matter what bator you use will have spikes if you try adjusting it every time it goes up or down. Get it running for a week at a steady temperture before you place any eggs in it. Most of the eggs that are ruined are by the human running the bator, not the bator.
