    Wow, I'm sorry you lost your eggs.

    [​IMG] I lost my last batch including a peacock egg. For some unkown reason the incubator shot up over 104. I'm using it again so I'm not counting my eggs until they hatch......


    I hope you have better luck with the hydrometer.

    I hate when they die to close to hatch. I don't know why it should make a difference, but it does.
