    The room I keep my LG in is 60-70 also. It normaly is about 65, but on cold nights it goes down and on warm days goes up. I found when the room cools it does not affect bator too much, but when it warms up I have to really watch the temp or it goes too high! My last hatch they started hatching on day 19 (I read higher temps equal ealy hatches).
    Hope this helps.

    I think you should get a fan kit for that bator.
