    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    I have a Brinsea Eco 20 w/turner.

    Last night before we went to bed, I noticed that the humidity was a little low. My temp was perfect at 99.5F. I took off the cover, added water into the two troughs, and put the cover back on.

    This morning I woke up at 6:30 and noticed my temps were at 97.5F! I forgot that adding water can really lower the temperatures....

    *sigh*

    Today is day 5. Do you think I've ruined them? Any input will be appreciated!

    They should be fine,hens do get off the nest to eat and drink so eggs do cool some.
