    Do you think it's running too dry? It's not the Frankenbator. I'm incubating in Frankenbator, but hatching in a $100 foam incubator. I think it's an LG, but I'm not sure. It has a fan (not exposed) and the temp is preset.

    I think what we were both saying is that we trust the Frankenbator more than the styro

    Too dry, too wet, too hot, too cold or wide swings between all of the above. I've just heard too many horror stories about styrofoam. Of course, it could be something else, but I wonder.....

    That's great! Does the bloom streaks happen because they are pullets? I had that too, just a tiny bit.
    Oh, I thought you were keeping the ducks! :( I hope you get grow out pics!!

    Yes!

    And they are all alive at lockdown? Can you try to do a hatch in the frankenbator just to compare results and narrow down if it really is the hatcher?

    I see. I do have enough room to hatch in the frankenbator, but it would mean that the humidity would have to be high for the duration of the other eggs incubation. Anyone have experience doing this?

    Maybe I will try it with the next batch.

    Maybe move the non-lockdown eggs to the styro for those 3-4 days?
