I have a cheap styrofoam little giant bator. MIL wanted to borrow it for duck eggs, assured she hatched before and that my trying to tell her how to run it was not necessary. So I just had to throw up my hands and say whatever. Well I couldn't even ask how things were going because I just had that gut feeling. Well sure enough a couple days ago she brought the bator back, she had exploded a huge hatch of duck eggs! Basically she just set them and forgot about them. OMGoodness I was furious. Of course dh won't let me make her buy me a new one! She apparently bleached everything but it still totally reeks like rotten eggs! Yep she will not be borrowing anything again and I am pretty sure I am just going to have to chuck the bator, and hopefully get the smell out of the egg turner! Some people! Anyhow, just had to vent!. And I hatched her very same duck eggs a couple months ago, with a 100% hatch rate at my house!Go figure!
