Chicken eggs need to be turned a minimum of twice a day for 18 days then not turned for the last 3 days.
Yeah, a $9 RTC seems like a safe bet to me.QuoteChicken eggs need to be turned a minimum of twice a day for 18 days then not turned for the last 3 days. You need a clock for this. Without it, if you have to reboot the processor for any reason, how does it know if it is the last 3 days or not?
Good point, Peter. Clearly recording in EEPROM the date/time you started this batch would be essential. But without a RTC, if you lose power, you don't know how much time elapsed before it came back.
