    Good luck!

    I'm sorry. Try putting pebbles in the waterer.

    What's up with double posting..ey? My computer must be slow today. I did the same post again, because it didn't show the first one. Oh well, I hope everyone is staying warm..in the cold states. Wish we had a real fireplace. My electric if fun though. :)

    Update on my incubator.

    It looks like when my water system failed and flooded everything, it caused to humidity to get way too high and made the heater malfunction. Sounds right anyway. We ran it all night without any water in it and it slowly got back up to temp. Hubby and I had to pick up a new tupperware container today and rig it for the auto water system. We also picked up a wireless acurite temperature and humidity monitor to make sure this doesn't happen again. The surface area is a bit smaller in the container and humidity is hovering around 25% but I like to dry incubate anyway so we'll see how well this works. I'm sure humidity will be a bit higher once spring gets here and the heat doesn't run anymore. I put my eggs back in and actualy counted them this time...there are 100 turkey eggs in the big cabinet, 26 in the hatcher, and 4 under a broody turkey hen lol. Hopfully, there's a demand for poults soon!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Wishing you a very successful hatch!

    [​IMG] I'm sorry. I used to put marbles in the water dish for a few days with newly hatched chicks. Now I start them off with the water nipples. Keeps the brooder much drier and less smelly, too.
