This may not be considered an Emergency by most but it is to me.

I don't know what to do, last week my SIL came over and for some unknown reason left his dog out of the car and forgot to put him back in.. This was last Saturday. It was 1/2 an hour before I knew it and he killed my only rooster

plus 3 of my hens. I grabbed up my eggs and have been trying to get my bator right. The temp was up to 115 and I moved it down now it's 75. It's a hova bator so it's a good one.

The round thing I think you call it the waffer(sp) Does anyone know does it need to be all the way screwed up to the top?????

Does anyone know why it's doing this. I'm only moving it a little at a time but I can't get it right.

I'm running out of days to put these eggs in.

Thanks for the help if you can.

First, how big is your incubator? The small ones can be difficult to stabilize.

Second, an empty incubator, like an empty refrigerator, will be harder to stabilize.

Third, since you're on a time limit, you might ask around some of your local groups and see if someone would be willing to incubate for you, or loan you a broody hen. You might even check Craigslist.

Good luck! I hope that helps, or someone else might be able to help you fix your incubator!

It holds I think 42 eggs with the turner in it. I've never had any problems before I just don't know if something is wrong with it.

Thanks
