    Wow, what a setup you have! I do a lot of staggered hatches also but I incubate in a cabinet bator and hatch in a hova bator. I have 4 baskets crammed in there. I probably could've made it work with just 2. Maybe I'll change it. I don't know yet lol. I locked them down yesterday but just put the baskets in today (I just drilled the holes in them today). I should've double checked my water troughs before I stuck them in there.

    I am in total agreement with Yokel's assessment wholeheartedly!!!
    I actually think I'll have to make another incubator just for this. [​IMG]

    I have done hatches with a local preschool the last 2 years. The first year we didn't have many hatch even though we used my Brinsea. We figured out that the temps dipped on the weekends too much for the Brinsea to compensate for - it would get down to the 40's in the classrooms over the weekend. Last year I incubated the eggs at home and just brought the incubator in for the hatch. Worked out great. Of course, my favorite part of the whole thing is teaching 20 - 25 preschoolers to go "Peep!...Peep!...Peep!..." all day to encourage the eggs to hatch! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    LOL!!!! I want to take some to my brothers class, but some of those kids freak me out, especially the parents... I wouldn't like letting them hold them, because knowing them they would squash them... Which is my nightmare...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Atleast my brother is starting to get into it, even though he is scared of the geese... He wanted sultans so I got him them, as long as he takes care of them at shows... I wish all kids could have parents that care enough to teach them about animals..
