    what would be a step up not too expensive from the hovabator styrofoam forced air bator?I think maybe I need a new bator maybe the one I have has reached its limit.It has run for about 1.3yrs.straight with very little down time between hatches.

    Maybe it just needs a rest and a good disinfectant. I saw your post with the correct temp. and humidity. The only other thing I can think of is contamination. A lot of people use bleach. I don't think I would get rid of it if the temp is good.

    thanks I wash it after every hatch with bleach I am at a loss.I guess maybe I will let it rest and do a hatch on my eggs or picked up eggs and see how that goes.All the hatches are shipped eggs.
