    I never use mine outdoors; I don't know anyone that does, due to the temperature variations. Perhaps in a garage, where temps are a bit more stable. But, an incubator is designed to warm up, not cool down - there is a heater, but not an air cooling unit, on your bator, so it's likely that it'll get way too hot in there.

    It would be best to move it to a more temp. controlled environment. You want to give those eggies the best chance possible! [​IMG]
