    Day 17 here - getting ready for lock down.

    I had heard from many on here that by this time the eggs generate their own heat. My home built is running a house thermostat so it won't get too warm, but I have definately noticed that the lights are off way more than they are on.

    I guess the little buggers are still growing!!! Monday evening I go into Lockdown!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good luck! Hey I never realized that in lock down they might actually be generating some heat, makes sense. Maybe that's part of the reason my temps got screwey in the last day or so, since the thermostat and lights are much lower, maybe it threw off the balance somehow? Anyways again, good luck!
