    1 pip out of 6 eggs I really need to make sure this bator is all set for the Easter hatch. I have never had this much trouble, lost 1 baby to the membrane drying out and killed one baby another was born so wet it took her 2 days to cool off....... I will never again use the small bator I will stick to my old trusty foam one. New technology my butt..... Praying at least the one little pip makes it out and hopefully we will get at least 1 more out of this..... Feeling bummed out right now[​IMG]

    I'm in. I'm testing my MacGyver Bator with fertile eggs starting next week. If it works well I'll be using it for the Easter hatch too. If not, I'll either tweek it or borrow my friend's incubator. :lol: Hi, everyone!

    Good morning to you too. No, unfortunately there is no alarm, and I wouldn't hear it if there were. On the upside, I have a whole home generator, so if power fails the plates would still function.
