    100% success. dual experiment. I saved my eggs for five days. As I was gathering them I placed them in the hall closet where there is stable temps and turned them daily. I then waited seven days before placing them in the incubator. I placed one layer of glass marbles in the water tray; then placed ΒΌ cup water to keep the heat steady in the incubator. My temps ranged from 99.6 to 100.6 for the first fifteen days. My babies hatched on day 17 and 18. All 17 hatched[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
