    Agreed, WAY off. I have to set my 9300 at 103-104.5 to get where I need to be!

    What a cute little helper you have there! I can't even get my daughter to acknowledge the chickens. How many incubators do you have going there?


    So, I was able to get into mine tonight- I had a small hatch due of the eggs from the DMRIPPY auction of MLF, EX & ISA leghorns. I got 8- Very pleased. Also, six from my eggs.

    I did happen to count what I threw in the incubator the other day and is due on April 8th-
    32 From the Greenfire Coop (Sulmtalers/Bielefielders/Barbezieux)
    29 from the light sussex coop which also has sulmtaler/CL
    14 silkies
    17 Isbar/Hona
    14 Easter Eggers
    2 Olive eggers
    I plan on selling these chicks-

    Happy hatching everyone-

    The little giant reads 99.7. I put my thermo from my brinsea in there just to see and it says 101. I reduced temp on little giant 2 degrees.
