Incubator problems help please - Page 2

post #11 of 18

You want the incubator in a place with a stable temperature. You don't want it in a spot that is going to be really warm sometimes, and cool other times. You want to reduce the chances of temperature spikes as much as possible. A constant ambient temperature is best.

you can wrap it with a small blanket or towels but the incubator should be kept in a room that the temperature stays at around 65 to 70 degrees for best results .away from windows and heat from things like TV and such .

be careful who you trust  believe me   just as sure as you do  the ones you trust the most might. make a fool of you  the road you travel on my be filled with  ruts and holes  careful where you place your feet you might fall and bust your nose .

dose not  matter where can be on a low table end table or something like make sure it is  stable  and will not get bumped  off . it can be any where as long as the temperature stays constant . it can be high or low run the incubator for a couple of days to check for stable temps and humidity before setting your eggs .this is very important .
