Trina,

Thank you for the advice. I am going to try again. I just removed the rest of the eggs from the incubator and am getting ready to clean it out to start over. I've already ordered some more eggs so I want to have the incubator ready and warmed up when they get here.

The dimmer switch I use is like an extension cord. I got it at Target, and it's a lot simpler than wiring up an in-wall dimmer. I highly recommend it.

I think the chicks' peeping is what gets the dogs' attention. The dogs know there's a bird in there somewhere!

On a different topic - does anyone know if the birds will chase a laser pointer spot? I had dropped a small wire tie in the brooder and the chick pecked at it like it was a bug. I just wonder if they'll chase the red light the way a dog or cat will.

Thanks again!

Dave
