    Man I had one loanly little button egg in my incubator I had to move the bator because I have to much on the curcuit and it was blowing the breaker.... so I get the incubator upstairs to where I was going to keep it... and I open it the one little egg fell out of the carton I had it in and broken open...

    I am so sorry that happened! [​IMG]

    But you are NOT a horrible person! These things happen, and we have to learn from them. You are not horrible for having an accident. [​IMG]

    thanks guys, I really didnt think that the thing was going to grow.. I have had such temp swings in that incubator since I set that loanly egg.. the thermometer said it was 138 at one point (I dont think it was really that hot in there) the air was leaking out the side of the cheapo foam sheet one I built so I took my cheap foam sheet incubator apart and held that little egg gently in my hand while my hubby put the guts from the old one into the new one..... (a nice worm box from wally world) waited while it warmed up and gently put the egg back when the temp was stabled out. maybe that is why I feel so bad I kinda babies that little egg...
