    Put some paper towles on the hatching tray. Keep the temperature a little on the low side 99 not 102 they are small, so they change right with the air temp. So they say if its 102 the egs are like 99.5, so keep it like 99, so the eggs stay 99. No need for a water wiggler that will give you a wrong inside egg temp. whatever the air temp, the eggs are like .5 degre cooler. Good Luck!
