    I put my sound amplifier in my incubator today to see if I could hear anything in my coturnix quail eggs. It is the kind that has a battery and 2 ear buds on a wire. I ran the wire outside of the bator and put on the earbuds. I certainly can hear little pipping sounds and also once in a while a few chirps. Pretty neat, has anyone else tried this? I put in a new battery before placing it in the bator but I am sure it will be drained by morning. Today is day 16. Maybe they will hatch tomorrow. I have 15 eggs set.

    I used a stethascope to determine which egg was chirping....I could hear it banging around a bit.

    I wonder if that wireless baby moniter that I have in the closet would work , the transmitter is battery but the reciever has a plug in
    but I have a place to plug it in and a shelf to put it on in the feed room .

    Like ga_goat, I wondered about a baby monitor. Was wondering how it'd hold up in a constantly humid and hot setting, but still thinking of giving it a shot. [​IMG]
