Okay, I am new to the chicken world. I have own my chickens for just a couple of months. I decided to try and incubate a few off my hens fertile eggs. I have 8 eggs that I put into my homeade incubator. I made it from an igloo ice chest. I put the eggs in there this morning, after letting it heat up for a day. they humidity was at 45% when I put them in there, so I added a little water. I have been told to keep it at 101.5 degrees bc its a still air, and 60-65% then up to 80-85% humidity the last three days. I noticed the humidty went up into the 60's. the temp was running from 97-104 (Thermastate would cut off at 104 and turn back on when it hit 97). When I went to rotate the eggs the humidity was up into the 70's , about 71 honestly, but temp was still the same. I noticed there was water in the bottom of the cooler, I quickly removed the eggs covering them with a towel to keep in warmth, dried the bottom from all water and changed out the container that I believe had a leak. Now my temp is staying between 59-64, but my temp is only going from 97-100. Is that temp fine? I was told for still air it had to be 101.5 degrees. The termostat is cutting off at 100, but earlier it was cutting off at 104. I did not touch the thermostat....can it change? What do i do? Do i bump up the thermostat? Thanks a bunch!!!!
