    Today starts lockdown for me starting today. I expect hatching on Wednesday 11/04/09
    Here are a couple issues we have had with incubating this set:

    First, this incubator has not had much luck in the past so when I got it from my dad I added a FAN from an old computer. This seemed to stabilize the temps nicely so I feel good about that.

    Second, part way through I bought a second thermometer and after a week of incubating I discovered the temps may have been off some. I am hoping it was not enough to matter much.

    Wish me luck and as always I will share MANY PICS [​IMG]

    Lots of luck coming your way! [​IMG]

    As far as the temps being off goes, if they were a bit low it could delay your hatch a bit, but all should be well. [​IMG]
