    I'm gonna shoot some ideas, just possibleish ideas. Heating pad that reaches 98 ish? Fish tank with heat lamp and bowl of water. If your attics hot around 98 try putting it in there. Broody chicken? Hot bottled water wrapped in a slightly moist towel? Idk I feel bad that no one else responded to your post. Don't beat your self up if the eggs fails it happens.

    today was really hot around 36-38 degrees and it was in the sun unfortnately all day bc i forgot to close the door and it was really hot so i put it in the freezer for 2 mins just to cool it down then i put it back, right now i took it and got a heat type lamp thing and the egg is in a box with the heat lamp

    Ok word of advice do not put the egg in the freezer to cool it, it's not good for they embryo, rather go more natural and mist if with water to cool it.
