    Hi all.

    I have the Little Giant with the installed fan/temp/humidity unit. I read through most of the Little Giant thread but I am confused. People say to set the temp for 101 for quail rather than 99.9. Is that for the Still Air incubator only or is it also for the circulating fan model?

    Once again, my apologies for being pesty.
    Thanks, in advance,
    Dave


    PS. I will be receiving 48 eggs via USPS tomorrow or Wednesday. I also have the auto-turner installed if that makes any difference in temp setting.

    Temp is the same for quail as other poultry. With a turbo fan unit set the incubator to 99.5F. If still air incubator 101.5F measured at top level of eggs.
