    Is it normal for my auto incubator to have 37c for it's temp on the first day? I have 24 chicken eggs in the incubator. I read that the temp needs to be 99.5 for chicken eggs. Humidity is 53

    Do the temp go up over time or do I need to do something to make it go up?

    I had the incubator on top of my mum's tumble dryer but had to move it at, as my mum use the tumble dryer with out thing about that the incubator was here and the alarm when off from the incubator on the 2nd day.
    Would the tumble dryer break the yolks in the eggs ?
