    It's day 19. I'm at work. I should be home staring at eggs through a little window. My temp was good when I went to bed last night. It was a bit low this morning (98.4). I made adjustments. I have this horrible vision of getting home tonight and finding the temp at 120 degrees and 0 humidy. The other night I had a dream that I woke up and the temp was 135 degrees. Somebody hold my hand or give me chocolate.

    This batch started out with 12 black jersey giants and one barnyard mix. It is down to 6 giants and one mixed. My other incubator is on day 5, and it has 10 giants (blue/black/splash), 5 silkies and two barnyard mixes.

    Let me say this...Your only on day 19...everything is fine...don't touch anything...having a low temp at this stage is way better then a spike ....chicks don't have a certain starting day some start early some start late...keep your hands off the bator..watch your humidity try keeping in the 60 to 70% range anywhere in there ....
