I'm Curious but isnt that incubator for Fowl type birds? I mean cause I was looking into incubators and what not and I found that chicken incubators do not work for Parrot eggs. I am not sure, it still a little early for me and I didnt sit there and read that entire Page on the incubator.

Oh god.... that's reassuring. lol The challenge talon gives me is my fault. I didn't give Talon the attention he needed when he was going through his bluffing phase...
