    I have my hovabator running for about 3 weeks now. I'm finding that I have to do some tweaking every day. I just hooked up a little giant (to hatch in), it's empty, but it seems to keep a more steady temp with the electronic thermastat coming on and off more often. Does anyone have steadier temps with one over the other?
    PS Those thermometers that they include are worthless-my eyes can't read that small!

    Hey, Karen, what about your hatch?

    Well, the 3 Polish go in the hatcher on Wednesday. Yours go in on Saturday, silkies go in Monday. Out of 21 eggs, I have 17 left, which I have either seen movement , or can't determine, but look like they're supposed to. Then others, like Charlotte and Silver, where I can't see a thing cause the shells are so thick.
    I have major anxiety. I never thought one could get so emotionally attached to eggs!!! But then again, look at all your "twin" posts, LOL.
