So I have a mini fridge incubator and the temps I'm able to get is either 98-99 or 99-100 degrees. The heat source is a ring around the top with a pic fan pulling air up through the eggs and blows the air back down around the walls (eggs are pretty much center). My thermostat is set at 103 but the two electronic thermometers are both reading the temps listed. Please help, thanks

Are you talking chicken eggs? 99-100 would be best if they are chicken. My preset bator is set at 100.0 and ranges 99.7- 100.3.

99-100F is my vote.

If your thermometers are accurate, I'd still go with the higher temp. I've got forced air, and as long as it stays below 101, I'm happy. My goal is actually 100. But, I've got high and low temp spots. Last hatch: 22/23 in lock down. Started with 26.

x2. My set up is the same. 99.7-100.5 forced air. At times when temp outside changes there is a slight variation until the bator compensates.
