I have built and been working on a home bator, I opted for the water heater thermostat and was worried about getting it to adjust, but I finally figured it out and am now holding stady at 99.8!! You people who all did the journey before me I want to really thank them, thier info was invaluable. I was actually starting to worry at one point if I was going to be ready when I pick up my eggs next week, but I did it wohoooooooo! Man that bator is UGLY maybe when hubby gets back home from offshore he can build me a nice cabinet, hmmmm maybe I need to teach myself how to do wood working hahahaha. I can NOT have a styrofoam bator as I have a cat named Ninja that would make a very quick mess of the foam! His new fav spot is on top of the bator, figures IS it normal to jones like a druggie after you have a working bator, for eggs?
