Saw a skillet hot plate at goodwill for 4 dollars and bought the WM accurite with probe. I'm attempting this with the fertilized eggs from my little flock, using the 'dry' method if I understand it right. Goal is to keep the eggs at 40% humidity and 101F till the last few days and hand turning 3 or 5 x a day. (((((((EDIT: change in goal.. 30-35% no lower than 25% and wiggler temp about 99.5 F )))))))) I added a folded sponge type cloth after the pics were taken to help increase/ distribute the humidity and it brought it up. At last check the readings were GOAL.! I've been checking and adjusting dials and humidity regularly (obsessively) but twice the temp did raise up to 104F (probe is in a hm water tube). It had been hovering steadily at 98 to 99F otherwise. Did that high heat ruin the eggs? Any advice is appreciated!
