UGH! I could just kick myself right now! I've had 2 eggs in the bator for a week now. The temp was reading 100*. It was steady for the whole week. (I have an LG bator). I was gearing up to put eggs in at midnight this morning for the Thanksgiving hatch. Hubby brought home his multi-meter (some fancy tools mechanics use-it has a thermometer built in). He swears it's accurate so I wanted to compare it to the LG thermometer that I'd been using for a week. SO, put the multi-meter guage in, and it's reading only 98*. Soooooo I debated whether or not to change it, but against by better judgement I upped the temp a bit. It fluctuated and I finally got it holding steady at 100*. I went to bed at midnight after I put the 18 new eggs in. Woke up this morning at 6:30 and the multi-meter was reading 107*!!!!!!! So I quickly opened the bator to let heat out. I played around with it a bit more and got it holding steady at 98*, the LG reads 100*. I don't know which thermometer is right! Are the eggs dead? I had to leave for work, but Hubby called and said it's still reading the same. I'm so afraid it'll spike again for some reason! It was perfect for a WEEK and I had to go mess it up!!!!
