    Okay I an just now starting the water wriggle thing and I have a quesiton for you.

    I am using a water thermom. ( the kind digital kind with the wire and the knob at the end attached to the dohicky thing, lol. its for fishing.) and have it inside in the middle of it. Well its reading between 99.8 and 100.7. It changes back and forth and 3 times a day. Is it okay. Its a still air, so I dont know if I should raise the temp or lower it.

    Thanks in advance

    For still air , thats the one with the fan or not either way it should be around 101 or 99 so what you have it go and up and down to is just fine as long as it doesnt go down to 95 or lower . What kind of eggs are you incubating and what day are you on, the worst part of incubating is waiting get out the popcorn stand back and wait is all I can say [​IMG]



    Happy hatching [​IMG]

    There are quail and duck. The humdit is at 60. I read thats what quail should be and also duck. So it works out great.

    I konw what you mean by the popcorn and waiting. My last hatches I was in my room for 2 days stright. Lets just say its a good thing I have a bathroom in connected off my room, lol.

    The quail are courtnix and the ducks are mixed.

    Thats weird all the books and sites said 50-60% for quail and 60-70% for ducks.
