    Until day 14 my temps were perfect. Now with this artic blast we are getting the temp was down to 97 then when I Barely turned it up it jumped up to 103.. Stupid thing had been doing it all day. I can't get it right.. How worried should I be??

    Try wrapping some quilts or blankets around the incubator, but be sure to leave some room for air to circulate on the bottom? That should help alittle with the temp shift... try to keep it in an area away from doors, windows and drafts.....
