Hi ya'll. I have a little question. I own a still-air Hovar Bator incubator and I've hatched only one time in it (got it for Christmas). Out of 8 eggs, 3 pipped, 2 hatched, and I had to help those two that survived (didn't get to the 3rd one in time poor baby). They were standard sized silkies. Hatched Jan 24th. Now I have 29 eggs (Jap Bantams, OEG bantams - crele, barred, Silver Duckwing, Red Pyle, Brown Red, and B.B.Red, and 4 Standard OEG eggs - Golden Duckwing). I candled them yesterday and surprisingly they are all fertile. Problem is - the weather as far as temperature goes is INSANE down here in Alabama this year. After being 79 degress last week, it dove down to 28 degree high yesterday. And that's completely throwing off the temp in my incubator BIG TIME. It's driving me crazy. The eggs have been in the bator for about a week and a half now and I can't tell if there's any blood rings from the varying temp. Sometimes I can't get the temp to go over 95 degrees on cold days. And when it warms up outside, it will shoot up to 102 degrees. I try to keep the temp in my house at a constant, but I work full-time and sometimes no one is at home to watch the incubator, which is becoming a full-time job in itself. Any tips or ideas? Is this just bad timing as far as trying to hatch? My dad was looking forward to having some spawn from his Golden Duckwings, but I'm not sure if I could give him any at this point. OR should I get a better incubator? I've used this kind for years, but never before with the temp as variable as it is. Aargh!
