    28 eggs, lost 2 when the lid slipped out of my hand on day 7
    but we still have 28 to go 15 FBCM and 13 large breed mutts
    Stopped the turner, filled the water pan to the top and added a sponge for more surface area as well.
    Pretty consistant temp so far, so wish us luck.

    Stressful? No kidding. My husband and I share this same log in name so we both post. He posted the lock down. I told him this last bit of waiting is just to much. I can't stand it!!! I want to see those cute, adorable little fuzz butts. The suspense is killing me. [​IMG]
