    I have a little giant still air incubator, and the temps keep fluctuating between 97-101. Humidity is staying good. I candled all of my eggs and they seem to have viable embryos in them. Will they hatch, or do I need to keep a tighter control on the temp?

    I have a hovabator but I had problems with mine trying to go too high. I had to watch it really close but as of today I have 3 pips!

    Any chance it's your thermometer?? I have a Little Giant, and once it's set, it usually stays. Could it be that you have it in a drafty location (or one that's in the sun part of the day or possibly exposed to a ceiling fan that's only on part of the time)?

    My next thought was that it could be little hands, but I'm sure that the temperatures would fluctuate more, ya know?

    Keep us posted!
