    I went to turn my eggs a few minutes ago and the wiggler has leaked into the bottom of the bator (it has kinda swirlly purple fluid in it). Its caused a little rise in the humidity. Is this poisonous to my little chicklins who are squirming away in their little egg houses?
    PLEASE HELP!! [​IMG]

    I was just afraid that if I had to take all the eggs out.......thermometer and hydrometer out............screen out....ect. that i would cause too major of an upset in temp for too long and would loose babies!

    Quote:its actually a kids toy you can buy in toysections, gag stores and such. They're those slippy toys (not really slippy) but when you go to grab them the way they're made they will fall out of your hand...and since it's liquid color and glitter it wiggles hence the name. [​IMG]
