    I've been having problems with my Mille Fleurs dying JUST before pipping. Danny suggested that I up my temp in the incubator to 101.5--worked like a charm. (For those who don't know, I have a Little Giant still air incubator.) Thank you, Danny, for your wise advice.

    At first, 2 of the 3 failed to thrive. The one that did survive is starting to show positive signs, but I posted a thread on the Emergency thread, all the same.

    Thanks again for your help, Danny. Without your suggestion, I'd still have NO MF chicks!

    I want to thank Danny too, I read one of his post about temp being off and so I uped mine and placed a medically calibrated thermo. in and it read low at 98.7 while my digital read 102.7!!! I went and bought a Weather Channel hydro/therm and it now reads correctly with the medical thermo... So had I not read his post I wouldn't have figured out the temp was waaayy off!!! Also! I'm trying to incubate with damaged air-sacs(w/tips from Danny) and they babies are growing well!!! Thanks for thinking outside the box Danny!!! [​IMG]
