Depends. Is the incubator still air or forced air? Still airs should be kept at 101-102 and the eggs need to be moved around periodically so they incubate evenly. Forced air should be kept at 99.5-100.

Fan = Forced Air. That fan keeps the air moving so that there are no hot or cold spots. Because the whole incubator is roughly the same temp, you don't need to keep it quite as warm as a still air incubator.

I put eggs in on the 11th and still no pips. I checked the eggs they r still doing good. My humidity has been all over the place. I been on lock down for 5 days now. There is water in there but my humidity is ranging from 65 to 85 %. I hope everything is Okay any suggestions?

Are there too many air holes letting the humidity escape? Are you opening up the incubator? This can make the humidity change a lot, as can the surrounding humidity of the room. However, as long as its above 60% for lock down then the chicks should be able to hatch.

 

I look forward to seeing them when they hatch! :pop
