    I think I found my problem with the eggs not hatching in the incubator. I went and bought a hygrometer/thermometer from Lowe's. Well, after a couple minutes with it in the brower incubator, the reading on the thermometer read a whopping 110!!!!! The one that was in the incubator read only 99.

    Wow! That's quite a disagreement. Do you have a still-air 'bator? I know temp can vary widely inside of those, but 11 degrees.... yikes! I'd probably get a third thermometer to be sure.

    It's a still air..but VERY old...its a galvanized one..I'm testing 3 thermometers right now...testing them for the temp of the room. Them I will check it all again.
