    I made my bator from directions I found here. First had a dimmer switch, then put in a hot water heater thermostat. After temps ranging from 104 to 98, one of our first 4 has hatched (the others were discarded on day 18 for lack of embryo). From the next 4, 2 made it to day 18....one has hatched, the other has started [​IMG].

    We have 13 more eggs reaching day 18 tomorrow....
