So I set my first group of eggs into my Repti-Pro 5000 incubator last Monday night at 6pm. There are 10 eggs in total, Araucana from Sky Blue Egg - all beautiful with no cracked shells but, two with ruptured air cells. So the ruptured eggs are "standing up" in the incubator being rotated back and forth three times daily. I'm hoping to help orient the leaked air to the correct area of the shell and possibly give the embryo a chance to develop. I must admit I'm not hopeful about these two. The other eight without the broken air cells are sitting on their sides with the smaller end pointed down slightly. All of the eggs are resting on little foam egg holders that my husband found around the house somewhere. These are the times of day the eggs are rotated: 6:00PM 2:00AM 10:00AM The humidity is being held between 50% and 55% The temperature is holding between 99.5 - 101 I am measuring humidity with the Caliber III http://www.amazon.com/Western-Humid...6?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1282925529&sr=8-6 I am measuring temperature using the Brinsea Probe - Reads highly accurate in my opinion http://www.amazon.com/Highly-Accura..._1_cc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1282925603&sr=1-1-catcorr The Repti-Pro 5000 holds the temp amazingly well after its been calibrated. It is a forced air incubator and has a two degree variant from the bottom to the top of the unit - however with the probe being positioned right over the eggs I feel I'm getting a really accurate temperature reading and have adjusted the digital temp readout at about 107 to achieve the desired temperature range. http://www.amazon.com/ReptiPro-5000...8&s=electronics&qid=1282925683&sr=8-1-catcorr I have been candling using a highpower LED flashlight from Inova - Man this thing will seriously light up your egg and doesn't get hot at all http://www.amazon.com/T3-MP-Inova-Tactical-Flashlight-Lumens/dp/B0014BUEW8 So we're on day four today and I'm so excited because last night at the 6pm turning I was too impatient and had to candle. I'm so glad I did because I saw three hearts beating!!! So all my hard work (and my dearest husband's as well of course) is really paying off!! I'm going to try to get some pictures of the developing embryo tonight! Until then here is a picture of the incubator with the lovely eggs inside - You can see the two bottom left eggs in the front being oriented differently than the rest of the eggs on their side and the probe wire running inside the incubator.
