    Yea, its to hot. 101 at the top of the eggs is about right. 102 at the top would be ok but not if its showing 102 or above below the top of the eggs.

    Don't let humidty go below 20 even for dry incubation. Otherwise, opinion varies from around 40% for regular incubation to well under that for dry incubation. read up on the subject before you set the eggs.
