After getting my 1st ever bator finished up and egg ready, i discovered i may have messed up with the choice i made for the inside lining of bator. Its made from a sink style cabinet base, lined with 2" thick white styro and https://www.lowes.com/pd/48-in-x-8-...-Reinforced-Plastic-FRP-Wall-Panel/1000174771 glued to the styro on the inside.. My thoughts were the material would be humidity proof, moisture proof, and easily cleaned., not to mention it has that nice sterile white finish...After running through several hours of heating/cooling and opening lids, it remains to have that Plastic/fiberglass smell. Not a melting smell by any means, just a ever present fiberglass smell. Any thoughts/suggestions are welcome. Did look to try and find literature on the panels, but not much luck. Its used primarily in bath rooms, high moisture areas. Do you think the smell would hurt the eggs/chicks? I would hate to completely tear it back down, but do not want to kill a batch of eggs/chicks. thanks.
