    I am going to join. We are on day 21 of our first ever hatch! Out of 24 eggs we've got 3 chicks. Around 6 were not fertilized. We are going to set our second round on Friday and change how we do some things. Then our 3rd round will be the Easter hatch. [​IMG]

    I've discovered something awful today. I finally brought my bators in to clean and I noticed that the water tray on the one I got last year is cracked! :barnie I left it outside after last year's hatch like I've done with the old one. I guess GQF made it thinner or used a cheaper plastic. I'm still going to use it, but I won't be filling it with water. I'll just have to use containers this time. :confused:

    A sponge! That's what I use. I only use the small wells, and then use one sponge. :)
