    My new bator arrived today!!! [​IMG]

    I was going to place it in my oldest daughter's room (almost 17) because it seemed the safest place from two younger kids and the dogs. Another place I was considering was my bathroom. It is a master bath, only accessible thru our room, so the kids rarely go in there. We have a long counter top in there that would be safe but would the humidity be thrown off by Dh and I showering??? I know, weird, but I must ask!

    In my room I could keep a closer eye on the eggs and they wouldn't be subjected to loud music. [​IMG]

    It should be okay in the bathroom. Less traffic and less hands to disturb it. I don't think a shower will cause much change inside the bator with the humidity. It is not like you will be in there taking a hot shower for several hours at a time.

    I'd go with the bathroom too...those last three days when you need more humidity that just might be the spot to put it....
