Thanks for the wonderful clarification, Jobi, but I did understand you perfectly the first time! My comments elsewhere about a "recommendation" for incubating in the dark came from my assumption that since most breeders incubate in the dark, I should, too.

This goes against what you do, I know, but I thought incubating in the dark seemed to make the most sense. However, now that you've explained that there is more to your light incubation approach than simply an inexpensive incubation heat source, I may have changed my mind!

See, if your book was already published and this theory was included, I probably wouldn't have run out to buy an incubator! Turning a light on and off to adjust the temperature has got to be easier than fiddling with and incubator. Oh, well.

Thanks, once again, for providing such detail.

For what it's worth, I understand all your posts perfectly. They are very precise, which is the best way to communicate. Most English-speaking Americans (me included) use far too many words. -Jeff
