    Im not per say. I put them in the first 7 days then only used one. When the chicks hatch to dry them you take both out to help them dry. Which to me screams moisture loss and dry air entering. I will most definatly remove them both after the first zip\hatch. Yall give the best advice!

    So got a question about lock down. The sensor which controls the thetmostat sits on top of the eggs. Where do you place it during lock down? The chicks will knock it off after hatch causing over heating. Will check back later for answers. I am sure there is an obvious answer in the instructions but we followed the instructions on BYC to toss out the instructions which come with the LG 9300. LOL

    When my ducklings knocked it off, every once in awhile I opened the incubator and put it back on the eggs

    I got one of those Little Giant ones and also bought one of those egg turners. I put 34 Black, Blue, and Splash Australorp eggs that I bought from Kurt (RattlesnakeRidgeWV) into it last night. I will let you know how it turns out when they hatch.
