    Putting 30 eggs in at midnight. Who is putting eggs in then too? If you've just put them in within the last couple of days or will be in the next couple let us know and we can track the hatches with each other and help each other with any questions or problems that come up. I'm hatching white leghorn eggs and some welsummer. Good luck everyone. Here we goooo!![​IMG]

    We'll wait for ya....... I put mine in last night at midnight and had it going to about 4 hours before then at 100.0F Checked it at 1AM and still great on temp [​IMG]. Checked it at 2AM and still at 100.0F [​IMG]. Checked it at 9AM this morning and the temp was at 105.5F [​IMG]. Did i just hard boil them or will they be ok?? I opened up the bator to quickly cool the temp back down and changed the temp. Looks like its holding strong again at 100.0F. I hope they'll be ok [​IMG]. We shall see.

    Quote:If you have a still air bator you might still be ok, circulated you might be in trouble. What bator are you using? I set 14 eggs last night at 8pm, 10 buff silkie and 4 coro Split sussex. Got another 18 silkie eggs in the mail that should be here in the next few days hopefully. They are a mix of BBS, buff, white, and porcelain silkies.
