    Well, we made it to lock down. Started with 42 eggs, 10 were not fertile, 2 early blood rings. As of today we have 29 in lock down. One didn't make it. It was developed but tiny. :( poor little thing.
    With the temp to high on day one, then again yesterday. Then it didn't stay steady this time. I don't know why the hatch I did just before this one it stayed at 100.5 clear through the incubation process.
    I am still curious on how many will actually hatch. When candling some were moving alot and others were not moving much. I hope they were just sleeping. lol
    Any way Happy hatching everyone.
    This is my second hatch ever!!! So exciting. Saturday is the day.

    Yes everything is the same. The last hatch was just before this one. This one I started a few days after the end of the last one. I didn’t even bother the temp control either. I think it’s because the temp has been up and down here so on warmer days it get warmer then the set temp in the house. I turned on the central air before I left yesterday and it seemed to help stay a constant temp in the incubator.
