    I am going to incubate a new batch of eggs and I was wondering where the best location for the incubator would be. Since it is pretty cold where i live, my house is generally kept at 64 degrees, but I keep my bathroom heated to 75 degress. I was thinking of putting the incubator in the bathroom where it is warmer, is that a good idea? My incubator is a Hovabator 1533, with a fan.

    Thanks for the advice! :)

    I would try to put it in a room that has the least amount of drafts. and is the most stable in temperature.

    bathroom might not be I good idea if you take hot showers as humidity would be pretty erratic.

    True, although it is supper dry in my house during the winter. That bathroom is used only once a day for a shower, so not a crazy amount of varience in humidity.
