How exciting for her! That would have been my dream as a kid.
How many days into incubation are you? It appears that you have condensation on the windows?
4 hours. Had it running since yesterday. Pulled a plug out the top earlier to reduce humidity. It's around 72 percent now. Hoping it will drop soon
I personally would wipe off the condensation.
What are you hatching??
Ameracaunas, barred rock, and mystery eggs lol. Not sure which ones laid I let my daughter pick them out
Lol! That's excellent! You'll have to keep this thread updated. We'll all be following...!
Ok, I know you didn't ask for advice, but I am going to give you some because I don't want to know that little girl is going to be dissapointed if she doesn't get some hatches. I use an LG 9200, styro bator. If you don't have checked accuarate thermometers in the bator. Please get yourself a couple and don't trust any unchecked gages on the bator. Make sure if it's still air you are running 101-102 with temps taken near the top of the eggs and if it's forced air 99.5F. Also spot check the bator. My bator has the same heating element as yours and under the heating element is 1-2 degrees warmer than the center and the outside perimeter, so it's a good idea to rotate the eggs daily.
Now, what really concerns me is your humidity. Humidity that high (anything over 45% in my opinion is too high over an average) will drown chicks. High humidity will keep the egg from loosing moisture and the end result will most likely be a bunch of perfectly formed babies dead in the shell come hatch time. I highly recommend if you are not in a high elevation, to empty the water in the bator and run a low humidity incubation and check air cells for growth. If you take a look at this: http://letsraisechickens.weebly.com...anuals-understanding-and-controlling-humidity it will help you both understand what humidity is all about and how to find the right humidity range for your eggs. I wish you and your daughter the best of luck. I hope she gets lots of fluff balls. (BTW, I leave both vent plugs out for the duration of the incubation.)
