Question on temps with dry incubation

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am on day 2 of my first hatch. I am doing the dry incubtion method. My temps run from 98.2-99.7. Is this an ok range. I have messed with the bator numerous times and it always seems to settle here. If I try to increase it gets to warm. I am hatching serama eggs.

If you have a forced air incubator, you want to be as close to 99.5 as possible. Low 98 over the average will most likely cause a slight delay in hatch. If you are using a still air you want at least 101, preferably 101.5 and no higher than 103 taken near the top of the egg. I myself use a low humidity method and run dry when possible. As long as I keep it around 30% my temps stay fairly consistant- as consistant as a little giant 9200 can...lol
