    I noticed online a company offering a "complete" hatching kit, it contained a forced air incubator w/auto-turner and a still air incubator to be used as a hatcher, so I started wondering... is it less important to have stable/even temperatures in the last 3 days than it is during the first 18... what is your opinion?

    i dont think its as important but it still needs to be near those magic numbers so i would def. keep it close

    If you're not opening the still air incubator day 18-21,22 it should stay very stable. I move my eggs from the Brinsea to my still air Hovabator to hatch, and it works great.
