    I'm hatching my first batch of eggs. I put 13 in the incubator (2 not fertilized...removing today) and I'm using Little Giant still air incubator 9300. I am super insecure that I'm doing this right. The instructions said to set temp at 103.5, but that seemed super high and nothing I read out there matched, so I went with 101.5.

    I'm currently at DAY 14. Any tips are greatly appreciated!

    I am curious, I also have the 9300 and this will be my first time hatching. ( I normally buy chicks ) I have 18 eggs in it with the egg turner. My temp stays at 100.5 but my humidity is all over. Have you had any success with this machine?
