    Maintained temp until I put the eggs in at the wee hours of this morning. Now the temp has stayed steady at 102 degrees (36 humidity). Is this gonna work, or do I need to figure out a way to drop the temp a couple degree's.

    Oh, this is a very simple homemade incubator.

    If it is possible might try to get the temp down a degree maybe two.

    if you have fan in your incubator 99.5 to 100 is ideal

    if you dont have fan 102 is ideal just like in a still air incubator.

    humidity is perfect

    have you check that your hydremeter is accurate?
    Use the salt metod to test it
