    For three days now, the chicken lizard eggs in my incubator haven't made any growith. They're still moist, but haven't matured to the next stage yet. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Is the incubator inside another container or are the eggs inside a container inside the incubator? If you also grow plants, have you noticed anything irregular with plant growth cycles?

    No, the incubator is on my tower roof, near the chicken coops. It has worked properly in the past, and is properly secured. I do grow plants, but only in backpacks (with the exception of the garden plot that is also located on the roof, but far away from the incubator). I'm going to try taking the eggs out and resetting them to see what happens. If that doesn't work, should I try relocating the incubator?

    Addendum: The incubator is on one of the extending wings of the tower roof. Could that be affecting it?

    Just a couple of hours ago the eggs were small and moist. I just checked them again, and one is "parched" and the others are all "burnt". Something's weird. I think I'll make another incubator! LOL

    Could be! LOL

    Well, I just finished moving the flock from the roof to a small room of their own in the tower. Hopefully, that will fix the problem. :)
     
  7. Cold weather setting in, huh? Time to move 'em inside. :]
