    Is this a good temperature for these eggs?
    It "swings" between this and 99.7
    The humidity fluctuates between this and 46

    At night the temp goes down to about 99/98.7 ish

    I'm really hoping for a successful hatch this time...

    You would be better if the swing was between 100.6 and 99.7... getting below 99 during the first 10 days in not in the eggs best interest, you may want to wrap a blanket around the incubator or something to stabilize the temperature.

    I tried the blanket the last 2 night, but then it goes up to 102.something.
    This morning the temp was fine, humidity at 36 [​IMG][​IMG]
