    i just got the lg still air. this will be my first incubation with it. i did buy a digital thermometer that shows humidity and know about turning the eggs. the manual that came with it said 99.5 degrees for chicken eggs. Is that the best temp to use? Also what about humidity level? What does it need to stay at?? thanks for the help everyone
