    We have all been there chickencrazy. I set over 100 a few years ago in the beginning of the season without replacing thermometer batteries. Like you my temps where 9 degrees out. Changed batteries and the next batch was fine.

    Don't beat yourself up Gerald, it certainly wasn't intentional. You will be so diligent next time that you will have the best hatch ever. Keep your chin up buddy [​IMG]
