My little rose dutch bantam egglets aren't hatching I had the incubator cut out since we moved to a property with a dumb prepayment electric meter. I don't know how long it was off for, it happened over night because the stupid thing reads different amounts & says its going up in credit. Apparently, thats it running up money overnight & then it cuts out in the morning if you haven't put credit on the key. I lost my last clutch to that retched meter also & the one before. My last clutch of standard barnyard, which were further along than the banties, in the incubator with them, died. I performed eggtopsies, one was infertile, 2 had started them quit, 2 more had developed & then died during the power cut & the last egg developed fully, but then pipped through a blood vessel prematurely & died. I'm sick of these losses & just about ready to give up. We can't get off the prepayment meter because our new landlord has it so tenants can't leave big debts behind them. The stupid thing costs a fortune to run since the flats all electric, no gas. Currently I am in a coat wrapped under a blanket on the sofa with the incubator wrapped up in a towel because I can't afford to put another £10 on the thing until next week. Its eating about £40 - £80 PER WEEK! We are on thursday & have on 4.40 electric that has to last until monday. The stupid thing also charges you standing charges daily of about 25p. So we have no heating or boiler on & according to the thermometer my living room is 15oC. So the incubator is wrapped, otherwise it loses temp. Our flat is well insulated, but this is ridiculous. How can the energy companies force people to live like this?
