    Well I candled my eggs last night and am happy to say we have veining!!![​IMG]

    Last time I tried this I think my eggs got too chilled from the cold weather.They didn't make it more than 4 days.

    I have 29 eggs in the bator right now some did candle clear but I'll give them another week.

    My hamberg eggs are doing great.Only problem is I only have 1 Hamberg hen and she doesn't lay every day so when I get an egg I put it in the bator.

    The only issue so far is the temp and the humidity.
    I have a regular thrmometer that came with the bator {Hovabator} and a digital thermometer/Hydrometer and they both have different readings.The digital one is the kind used to monitor the temp/humidty in a reptile aquarium.

    So far so good...wish me luck!

    Are the two at the same height?

    There is a normal, vertical temperature gradient in a still air incubator. 1 inch of height can make quite a difference.​
