I think that corncobs can harbor bacteria. I used it once and had some chicks die for no reason. I will never use it again. I use pine shavings.

The incubator is easier if kept in a consistant room temperature. Is always better if well insulated. You did not give a description or pics of your incubator. Humidity makes a big difference in temperature also.
