OK, 4 hour round trip to pick up 6 fertile eggs, check. Stop at Wal Mart for some supplies with 2 screaming kids in tow, check. Turned off AC in sewing room to, hopefully keep them around 55 degrees, check. Now I have some really stupid questions. She gave them to me in a carton pointy end down, which I know is how you put them in the incubator. She told me she has been turning them for me. I had been planning on putting a carton on a stick and tilting it back and forth as seen on the forum. She told me the XX OO method had better results. Well, if she was turning them, was she turning them round end and then pointy end down? How do you turn them while you wait to put in incubator?? Has anyone attached a rubber glove to the side of an incubator to turn them without opening it up? I thought I'd use a foam flap over the hole to keep warm when not in use. Here are my supplies: bottle kit for lightbulb styrofoam cooler container and sponge stick and egg carton humidity gauge thermometer I can steal a mini fan from DH if its necessary tube and funnel for water addition glass for window at the top and side wire mesh to keep peeps away from bulb and fan if they hatch Is there anything that is absolutely necessary (funds are gone)??? We are putting this together tonight and will try different bulbs to experiment with heat and humidity levels. .. still need to read up on that one. Thanks for your help!!!
