    the bad news is i have crazy niece's an nephews an when they were over yesterday i was at work so my mom was home with the bator and she knows how to read the temps and everything so i have nothing to worry about but while my niece's an nephew's were over one of them ( i asked who but you no how kids are first thing they say is "" i don't know "" )..lol so one of them got to the bator with out my mom knowing an some how the plug was unpluged so when i got home from work i w ent straight to the bator an i notice the little red light wasn't on so i looked over an i saw the plug out i was like AHHHH!! an i hurry an plug it back in then i waited an hour so that the eggs could get back warm then i candled them an the chicken eggs are ok the chicks are still alive..... but all the duck eggs i don't no whats wrong i see veins but no movement an black watery stuff so i think they didn't make it : ( i left them in the bator tho cuz i wanted to see what all you guys have to say about it
