My DH is in no way "chicky". However, he just called me to let me know that the temp. is running between 99.5 and 100.0 and the humidity is down to about 40%...and the water dish looks empty! Can you believe it?? I told him how to add the water and he said "okay". I'm so proud...and glad he's retired and can keep an eye on the eggs and bator!
