    I just set 68 Delaware eggs with two scary therm/hygros. It would have been 82 if I was able to find my other two turner trays. I am so disappointed! We shall see what happens!! Im excited but am still prepared to be disappointed despite calibrating both temp and humidity in both devices only about....942959395395225 times! Who else set their eggs today (Jan 27th) & is due February 17th!!!! I am hoping to get lucky since both start date & hatch date end in 7s. lol [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:LOL! Just one bator. I had a straggler from the last setting. It hatched last night with some gentle persuasion.
