    We have a biological incubator running out at the farm at the minute. Apparently the kids have been finding the nest untended with the eggs cold occasionally but we will see what happens.

    Awesome!

    Good luck!!

    Late hatchers like that, especially ones that need assisting are most likely going to have developmental problems especially leg problems.

    Yay!!

    NO!!!! That's not good!!! My best two hatches were actually the ones I manually turned.

    I always use the wet paper towel. The warm humidity keeps it from getting too cold. During hatch if you open my bator you're going to get feel warmth.

    Adorable!

    It is going to be so hard giving them up. Well, then again, if they are as bad as I've heard with their screetching-maybe not...lol And count me in on the slap backs.

    I have a question for the Janoel knock off users. Anyone know how to reset the humidity alarm so it doesn't go off or goes off at a lower percentage?

    And has anyone seen @lazy gardener lately?

    Lazy Gardener just got back from her mission trip to Guatemala. I "saw" her on a different thread.

    No clue about the incubator alarm though.

    you can do it either way migs are hard to use the plating will do the job on its own where welding will not for that very reason and what your welding is hard to weld might practice on a beer can [​IMG] I do it on heavy metal and my brother in law does the thin stuff for me. a backing plate helps to stop blow out . but you got this cause you rock.

    Wow, you wouldn't think about something as simple as mopping would throw off the humidity that much, but if the room is closed up it does make sense.

    Yea, i mean obiously that Had to of been the issue. I saw a 40% jump that lasted im making an educated guess, about 3 hours. The bathrooms tiny, closed off, i dont have central air And i should have expected a humidity spike, shouldnt mop while incubating, lesson learned. Its Sooo my fault, i screwed up like i said, and im pretty upset w myself for it.
