wow well done, I've always wondered how successful this method can be...do they seem to be ok, no deformities of any kind?

Look forward to seeing pics!

nothing at all - they are fine. I measured the temps before i put them in and the temps ranged from 72 - 84 over a 1 week period. Average was about 79.

the fluctuation didnt affect them - time will tell though. as for now they are just as fit and healthy as any other hatchlings i've had!

Back in the late 70's and early 80's I incubated all of my eggs in the airing cupboard. :2thumb:
I think we get to precise with temps these days with people flapping if it is 1oC out to what they think is ideal.
