    What If the Power Goes Off?
    To understand more about embryo viability & temperatures
    Please refer to the following links….






    Some other ideas to help maintain heat in your incubator and great when you turn by hand is by adding some sterilized rocks,


    or even several sealed jars with warm water or small ziplock baggies with warm water to fill the empty incubator spaces.


    A full incubator of eggs always helps maintain a steady temperature even if it’s not good for your chicken math!


    CHAD has to be over 6 foot! My oldest, Talyn is 6' 1 and Chad seems to be much taller!
    HA! awesome!!! go call duckies!!

    I wasn't aware we were to get really bad storms. Do I really need to fuel my generator? Hate to lose the three bags of veggies in my freezer, not to mention my eggs! I have enough water stored to keep me for a few days, and charcoal and gas to fuel the grills, lol.
    Not that we ever lose power for very long.
    I have two gallons of water in my incubator, so heat loss should be slow and minimal. Actually thinking of hooking up a timer so it turns off for 15 minutes to a half hour a day to mimic a broody leaving to eat and such.

    I have had 2 traps out with the dead birds in them and have caught nothing. I am going to have to get rid of the dead birds soon before they smell too bad. I will probably re-bait with something else when I do that. Anyone with suggestions of good bait that doesn't stink too bad?
