    First time for me too. It is in my classroom (preschool) and will come home on Friday for Spring Break. [​IMG]

    It is a still air incubator and holding temp between 97- 101. I put in a dozen eggs and would love if even half make it.
    Next I am going to make a candling device so that I can check the eggs next week sometime.

    Keeping fingers crossed that this works and is fun for the children.

    I set some last Saturday and have had some temp problems but I thing that I might have fixed with moving the fan up off the floor. due to hatch May 1 here.
