    Yep, just had one in my last set of Calls... smaller than a dime though... but it was a clear too... maybe they had a hiccup when it was forming? :gig



    Of what? And which set? :lau

    Calls are done for this set... still have a couple of Ohiki that might hatch, I dunno for sure cuz those are on their own, lol...

    One last batch of Calls due the 16th...

    I wrapped my knock off with this insulation, before I got my Brinsea. It helped alot to keep temps more stable, and humidity too.

    Eh... Lol! Actually, it wasn't bad, until it went bad. On day 18 of a hatch!! I never determined if it was the thermostat or the heater itself, I bought the Brinsea. But I may fix it some day to use as a hatcher. I had bought it used from a local fella.

    As long as it has a good thermometer and (especially) heater, insulation won't matter. If you could see how thin the plastic bottom half of my incubator is, you'd swear it was a piece of junk. The egg turner isn't much better. The top is made of a heavier acrylic, which is pretty sturdy. If the bator has the first two things I mentioned, it will work great without insulation. My bator is in a room next to a window, beside the door that gets used to go in and out of the house multiple times daily, and across the foyer from the laundry room and a bathroom that always fluctuates temps, especially this time of year. I had a couple of pretty good hatches in mine so far, and the bator seems to be getting more steady with each use. In other words, I wouldn't put much stock in the insulation properties of the case... it's the heater and controller that makes or breaks an incubator... IMO. Just my 3c...
