    Hi,
    We have both of ours going and it seems the temps are ranging from 100-101.
    I think one is set at 4 and the other maybe 3.
    Should I bump them both down one??

    Thank you,
    Angela

    That is the temps you want. Don't change the setting. If you get the temps low your hatch will be late or very slow or even fatal to the chicks inside.
