Ok.....trying this again.... Long story short, I have an incubator in my daughter's kindy class. I paid for and provided all the supplies. The teacher has been monitoring the temp and humidity and I've been in and out candling and checking on things. We have been communicating very well in person and through email. Last week when I came in and candled, I mentioned needing to come back today or tomorrow to facilitate lock down. Well I've sent her three emails and gotten no response. The kids didn't have school today, but she told me getting in the school when it's closed wouldn't be a problem. Now I can't get a response for her and if I can't, then lockdown won't happen until day 20. I'm so frustrated because up until now it's been great. But now I can't candle, adjust the heat for their growing bodies, and increase their humidity. I'm thinking this project is going south now and I'm so upset. Poor babies...and poor kids who are so excited. Everything was looking great for these chicks to hatch. I don't think I'll ever volunteer to do this again...I hate not having control over the situation. I thought it would be a great science project for the littles... Ugh. Whine over.
