    Fingers crossed for you.

    I have 4 sebbie eggs with movement that should be pipping at any time now. I am almost holding my breath. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I went to add water to bump up the humidity, before I put the eggs in and when humidity got to where I wanted It I opened it up to put the eggs in and I was greeted with the aromatic smell of strong bleach. [​IMG] I washed it with plain water again this morning and it was in the sun all day. I think I will just go without the tray and screen since I think that is what smells. I will just use a bowl for humidity and I will got to Walmart or somewhere before they hatch and get some shelf liner stuff.
    but still I just can't get a break. [​IMG] I am going to let it air out a while then try it with a bowl. besides this will give the goslings a little more head room when they hatch. I just don't know what to do [​IMG]

    You can buy new wire at TSC or your feed store for under $10 for a roll. Bleach does oxidize those if left in the solutions for very long.

    yeah when I got it out I found out that it was the problem. it smelled strongly of it while the incubator bottom was fine.
    thanks for letting me know about TSC I will have to go there soon to get more layer feed anyway we are out. except for what the chickens have.

    What is the humidity for the first 28 days supposed to be ?
