    I just checked with my brother-in-law. He has the ability to build something that you could plug the device into that would alarm in some fashion (audio, text message to phone, email) and could also trigger a backup system to take over. Would you be interested in something like that?Won't know exactly what it would run until he knows what you want it to do.

    Just candled the first quail eggs I set, 19 silver/tuxedo coturnix eggs, 16 look great, 3 clears - for shipped eggs, not bad at all. [​IMG]1 week to lockdown.

    Candled the biggest of the 105 A&M coturnix, they all looked good, didn't candle them all, they are at 5 days.

    Set the last batch of eggs received today after a 3 day delay at the origin, 3 cracked eggs, the rest look good, nice size, jumbo cortunix. Opened the 3 cracked eggs of 50 shipped, pretty big air cells, but the eggs themselves looked fertile and intact.

    It's funny, the two that shipped with zero extras were the two with broken eggs, the one with the extras was perfect. There's some cosmic law named after someone that says that that's the way it goes - the inverse proportional law of cracked eggs to eggstras. LOL, S'all right, though, I have more than enough quail eggs to hopefully get me started with plenty to be choosey.

    I'll be selecting for egg size and bird size for the next generations, so it's nice to have the variety.

    Checked on the little mini brinsea, it was running at 80 degrees tonight, so I gave it a scarf and it popped up to 99.5 steady. To be fair, it is in the basement, which is currently 65 degrees. I wanted to challenge it and see what its limits are. :) The big cabinetobator is holding steady and chugging away beautifully.

    T minus 10 days and counting til the quail start popping! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
