    Its a Little Giant, and is okay I guess.

    I gave it the test run and it did great.... put in 18 eggs and it...

    well, not so great. It'd get super cold so I'd turn it up a bit, it'd get way hot (120 degrees) I'd turn it down.

    I think its playing nicely now... right at 98 degrees, but I wonder if any of my eggs survived! (It was just one night of tempeture bouncing and its the first night they were in, so i'm hoping...)

    Anyone knwo if my eggs have a chance, or if I should throw them out now?

    You have nothing to lose now. I would let them sit, candle on day ten and see what you have.

    Sounds like a plan to me!

    I'm excited... I hope I get some chicks, I've been torturing myself by looking at this message board's chicks of weeks now.
