    Hey Chickadee's
    I just bought a Little Giant 9200 and well I'm a very impatient person, so I want to start some Chicken or Duck eggs right away, but in a week I will be out of town for four days, will the Little Giant need more Water in those four days, or will it hold enough to get it by. I am impatient, but I can wait if It would be a problem. Oh and I have an Auto turner.

    Thanks, I'm so excited, this will be my first hatch! [​IMG]

    I wouldn't chance it. You never know what kind of temp spikes you might get etc.
