    MY STILL AIR ONE DIED AND HAD EGGS IN IT SO MOVED THEM OVER TO MY OTHER INCUBATOR THAT WAS HEATING UP FOR ME TO PUT THE TURKEY IN TO HATCH FIRST OF WEEK..I HAVE 10 BLACK AUS EGGS IN STILL AIR TOO..TEMP HAD DROPPED DOWN TO 83 DEGREE.

    I HURRIED UP TO TRACTOR SUPPLY AND BOUGHT ME A NEW ONE AND THANK GOODNESS THEY HAD ONE CAUSE THEY ONLY HAD TWO LEFT.. ALSO I HAVE SILKIE EGGS COMING MIDDLE NEXT WEEK..SO NOW I AM WORKING ON GETTING IT HEATED UP FOR SATURDAY NITE TO PUT TURK IN IT INSTEAD....ARE YOU GUYS CONFUSED YET?? [​IMG]

    I AM SAFE NOW BUT I WOULD SAY A PERSON SHOULD ALWAYS A BACKUP INCUBATOR CAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW.

    Wow! Glad you had a backup. I had built a bigger bator after the success I had with my little one and am using it as a hatcher. Luck was with me as I never gave a thought that a bator could quit.(His is a good idea for everybody. Get two bators one for incubating and a backup just in case.

    Glad everything is OK.
