    in my recently made DIY Styrofoam incubator and I'm looking for advice.

    My temps are staying at a solid 99 on 1 thermometer and 1 hygrometer. The hygrometer doesn't use decimals but it has not fluctuated from 99 all day since I tweaked the thermostat. However, my Brinsea w/ a probe in a water weasel barely makes it above 98.8. I have a few days so I'm just trying to perfect it before I put them in.

    Should I raise the temp a degree in the incubator to raise the Brinsea? I calibrated the hygrometer so I feel comfortable with that reading but I'm afraid the eggs will be almost a full degree too low.

    Thank you in advance!!!
