Cant find my post got an error message. If this is a repeat I apologize. I put a coffee cup of water in the wells. I have no way to tell where I am at with humidity as the hygrometer does not work. Any suggestions? Also I robbed my hens nest when she abandoned it last night. The neighbor was grating the gravel road all day and she came home sometime while I was gone (and I was gone from 8a to 8p) on the 6th day of sitting. After she went up into the oak tree to roost with the rest of her flock I ran to get her eggs because I knew she couldn't return to her nest until the next morning and that if left for 45 minutes once sitting has begun they will go bad or die. I found the eggs scattered over a 6' spread. Poor girl was only sitting on 3 of 20 eggs. I dont know if something had gotten into the nest or if they really laid them like that. The eggs were placed in an egg turner but not incubater as they were cool to touch. I was told to turn them and let them come up to room temperature. I cleaned all the equipment this morning and let it heat for two hrs with a temp range not greater than 100, no less than 96, which seems to be the best I I can manage. Im guessing these eggs will not hatch but will proceed as if the circumstances had been ideal. Basically my greatest concern is guestimating the humidity level within the incubator. Also do I begin my hatching countdown from day 6 or start from the top??
