    UGH!!! I cant stand it. Does anyone else hate the smell of a "just hatched" bator? [​IMG] After every hatch I take mine right outside to be cleaned ASAP!

    yeah that smell is aweful. It is the baby poo that chickies do before they zip out. [​IMG]

    It will smell pretty gross BUT, there is nothing like being sound asleep, then waking to the teeny tiny peeping of a chick still in the egg or newly hatched. My kids and I having woken in the middle of the night to see what is going on inside the bator. A wonderful experience!

    I know exactly what you mean- I tried a dab of pine sol when cleaning ours and it helps out a bit. clorox too...

    I clean mine out really good with hot water and a little dish detergent or sometimes bleach water. Then I dry it out and spray some Lysol in there and let that air dry. Takes the odor right out.
