I really hate my LG! Last time, I could not keep the temps up. This time, I cannot keep them down! It was not doing too badly at first, holding steady at 99.5* to 100.5*. Unfortunately, on day #2, I came one to that night after VBS to a temp of 114.8*!!!! EEEEEKK!!!!! I'm not sure how long it stayed there, but it was definitely too long. I candled for the second time last night (day 14) and I am down to 10 live chicks. I've left 12 eggs in there, but I'm 90% sure that the other 2 have stopped, but I want to be 100% sure before I pull them out for good. DH and I have been discussing this stupid incubator deal, and we're definitely going to get another on before we try to hatch any more. He may try changing out the thermostat on the stupid thing, but I'm just fed up at this point. It did just fine before I set the eggs (just like last time, but it seems like once I put the eggs in it decides to go nuts. It's in my pantry which is the most stable room in the house. In fact, we put a small space heater in there to make sure that the room temp is stable. We've had the air on in the house, but this room gets very little air circulation due to it's location and is always a lot warmer than the rest of the house. The heater is not running that much and the room temp is holding fairly steady at 77*. I'm praying that, at this point, these 10 babies will make it to the end. I'm surprised that any of them have made it, to be honest. I can't tell you the number of times that stupid thing will hold steady at 99.7* for hours and then suddenly shoot up to 103 to 104*!!! I'm just thankful that I've been home to rectify the situation quickly! No one is messing with the thermostat. In fact, that's the rule. Only I mess with the thermostat, add water, etc. Unless I ask DH to do something only after he has reported all the stats to me. So, now it's a waiting game to see if any of my babies will survive. Any suggestions on another incubator? Homemade vs. store bought? If store bought, what kind and why?
