    You should have the temp at about 101 for a still air and 99.5 for an incubator with a fan.

    Just leave the temp where you have it if its at 101 or 99.5, just increase humidity to 70%

    Step away from the bator. That is the best thing you can do. Just open it on day 22 and resist any urge before then. The bit of temp flux should be fine.
