    So my younger brother has hermit crabs and his heating pad just recently broke or something. I'm testing my homemade incubator, getting it ready for putting my eggs in it, and he says he wants to use my light that I have in there. I wish I could but I can't. [​IMG] He's all mad now and says that I'm selfish and don't care about his hermit crabs. [​IMG] Now he says he's going to shut off the incubator while my eggs are in it when I'm not there! [​IMG] And I've learned from experience that he will do it; now I have to guard my room and the bator. [​IMG]

    Just today I was putting the bator together and it was in our garage. He told me to move it or he would throw it away. So i told him I would, got busy with something else, and when I went outside, the incubator was tipped over in our drive way! [​IMG]

    Any thoughts??? [​IMG] When I was incubating parakeet eggs he actually did shut off the light during the night when I was sleeping.

    Tell your parents. Let them tell him what his punishment will be if he does it..

    Have you brought this up with your parents?

    I generally tried to stay out of disputes between my children, but you both have living beings at risk and I think this is a time for parental intervention.

    Good luck.

    If I were you, and I've had my share of nasty brothers, put a lock on your room's door. Or, next time he does that, steal his hermit crab. You never know, it may shut him up. (In a good way. [​IMG])
