    My wonderful DH [​IMG] was messing with the temp on the incubator yesterday, I started this hatch Sunday at 6am??? he finally got it back to normal, but this early in the hatch did he mess it up?? the hottest it got was 108 and the lowest was 91. [​IMG] [​IMG] why can't he leave it alone!!!!!

    yea I will wait till this weekend, but the reason I started Sunday was so that day 21 was on a Sat and that way maybe I could watch them hatch, so I guess I will pull Friday and Saturday eggs just incase and then candle Sat night, I might stop by the store on my way home and get a roll of duct tape for his hands, legs, mouth, Hey can I make a duct tape mummy ??

    Oh don't you know those men are like so bad....we don't go tinkering with your cars (ok some of us do) so keep the paws off the bator.. Tape some mouse traps around the perimeter and he will get snapped on! [​IMG]

    Mine cannot help himself to help out a chick or duckling then usually ends up killing one because he messsed!
