    great thread OZ thanks for sharing it

    had a runaway bator....:(
    it was running low today so i bumped it up 3f
    just checked it & it's at 105f
    i had just checked for clear eggs an hour before then so i guess it will be ok
    unpluged the silly thing
    cooled the eggs down some then put the lid back on
    98.6 will have to work till i get up

    ok folks time to hit the rack
    may all of ya have a 100% hatch rate
