Left home for a couple of hours today and when I came back I checked the bator to see the max temp that registered while I was gone. 116.9 degrees!!!!!!! I am going to candle the eggs tonight and if the chicks are all dead I am going to sell this bator and make my own! I have a water heater thermostat that might regulate the temp better than whatever the LG has in it. I haven't been able to get the humidity higher than 40% give or take 10%. I don't see how the heck I"m going to get it to 70% for hatching. This is my first hatch with this brand new LG. I used my mom's hovabator for my last hatch(which was my first). When I bought the LG I didn't realize it had such a bad reputation. I felt the eggs to see how feverish they were and they didn't feel extremely hot, so maybe they have a chance.
