    I bought a little giant still air incubator
    I have set the temperature to 101.5 and filled the channels with water, waiting for it to heat up

    Thank you Miss Lydia , I have read that awesome instructions


    I have a second thermostate in the little giant and found out that it registered 105 degrees instead of what the temp said on the incubator which I set at 101.5

    Question , are the eggs not viable at this temp

    I cannot say for sure but Have read where people have had hikes like that and the eggs hatched. I hope that's the case with yours. When did you set the eggs? around day 7 you should know. [​IMG]

    about the 24th then before you'll really be able to tell if they are okay but that isn't too far out.
