    Bahahahahahahahhaah! You are a brave person, I know myself well enough after reading these "incubating" posts for several months that I could NOT attempt this.

    Get those walking shoes on, cause I believe you will put on many more miles before the hatch!

    The best to you!

    Hahaha, Stevie, you have a little ways to go. I'm also on Day 14 with my first round. Hey, let that humidity go below 50%, though. It's a bit high for this stage.

    Ok. This is my third time hatching and yet still feels like the first time. I cant get the temp below 101.5 even with winter air blowing in my room. I will let the humidiity drop to 48%. Does that seem pretty good?

    Yep, that's much better. Good luck! If it's a still air bator, that temp is good.

    It's a bit high. Best if you can get it down to 100 at the most.

    I can try. Everytime I try to bring it down to 100 it drops to 95F-98F. Then If I tweak it up a little it brings it to the temp that it is up now. I might buy a brinsea octagon next week

    Throw a "blanket" of bubble wrap over it, it helps alot. If you feel the lid, it's warm and heat is escaping.
    I had stable heat in mine that way. But I was using that thermometer with the probe, and it was all over the place, it made me crazy, so I took it out and used my cheapy.

    I took your adivice with the bubble wrap. Its just that my mom loves heat. Thats why the incubator has that high heat
