    Age is but a state of mind. Where there is no mind, there is no aging. Works perfectly! Merry Christmas, again. [​IMG]

    Do hatching eggs increase the temp by a huge amount? My bator has been steady for the past 19 days - NO huge fluctuations. I am using that one for lockdown. We locked it down at about 4 pm today. It's been fine, staying right around 98 - 100. Humidity right around 70% Went to bed at 1. At 4:30 I got up to check and it was 102 and humidity was down to 25%!! For the humidity to drop that low, I think the temp had to be high for a while. Are these eggs toast?

    Lol, I just got online, kids already flew through gifts and destroyed the house I just cleaned. I made almost all the foods the past two days, so crock pot and heat ups in the oven so not much here on my end but watch the kids play and destroy some more. i get up early everyday and I do most of my chores then and late at night, I found it works alot better when you have kids. I dont have any projects going on right now so I am bored as crap too. And I dont really watch TV I am more a listener.

    Don't know what to tell you. Instructions that came with it don't address that problem, I suppose? [​IMG]

    your temps were low the first 5 days remember CH? If any hatch they will be late because of it.

    No pips yet. I had the channels at the bottom filled, plus a bowl of water and my humidity was like 90, so I pulled out the bowl of water. Now I have the bowl back in and it's slowly raising the humidity. Temps holding at 99 now, and humidity is still rising, but it's showing 50% right now.
