I dug out the incubator this morning to get it ready for the eggs. I plugged it in, turned it on and walked away for a few minutes. When I walked back into the kitchen the darn thing was smoldering and the styraphome (sp?) was melting. I called Bowmans and ordered a new one. It will be here Monday. I have the worse case of chick fever EVER!! I think it's b/c I didn't hatch last year and now I have a four year old to enjoy it with me. I just can't wait.
