    I have two sets of eggs in forced air bator, one about a week behind the other. I would like to know what changes to temp and humidity I would need to make to use a still air gator for lockdown. Any help would be much appreciated :)

    f your going into lock down in th still air incub. Temp should hold NO MORE than 102.. 101.5 is best. it is hard to keep the humidity up in the still air incub. but if you get a large spung pretty wet and but it in the bator. It will hold the humidity great.. Try real hard to not open the bator.
    Good Luck
