    I never see anyone mention the Brower. There is probably a reason for that, but I wondered. It sounds great, especially the part about how you can clean it in the dishwasher. Anyone know anything about them?

    I am having trouble with temp variations because even the most stable room in my house has a problem when there is a 40 degree difference between day and night, which is the way it is right now. I am in WV. You would think Arizona! Darn it.

    Last night it got down to 98, do you suppose I have killed them all? I really hope not.

    I'll find out. I bought a candler from a guy on BYC. [​IMG]

    If the temp in the incubator dropped to 98 you should be fine. Are you measuring the air temp or using a water wiggler?

    Air temp. I guess I should make a water wiggler, but I don't have a probe.

    The chicks should hatch fine. One time I lost the power and the incubator temperature dropped to 75!! Two weeks later 7 out of the 12 eggs Hatched!! You have nothing to worry about.
