In the Brooder
- Apr 13, 2014
So first off i'm so glad this site is here or I wouldn't have even gotten started. Chicken batam old english. Little giant still air manual turning.. Doing my first batch. today is day 1. Placed in the incubator and temp has returned to Normal but so far have had two incidents! After placing the eggs the temp did not return to normal so I upped it a bit....only to realize the probe had slippedunder the wire and was giving bad readings. Temp was actually too hot now..101.1 so "correct" this my boyfriend quickly lifted the lid about an inch or two!!!! I know ur not supposed to disturb in the first 24hrs.. needless to say the temp plummeted to 98.9 before coming back up to 102 then regulated out. Seems calm now but can anyone tell me feom experience if such an incident could destroy the whole bunch. 32 eggs.
