    Ok so last time I did this it was a poor hatch due to my first time and temp was off so was humidity. It's a fan incubator but a cheap one so I've got to treat it like a still air incubator. What temperature shall I have it for quail eggs? And what humidity? Please help

    Still air bators can be kept at 101 degrees and lowered to 100 or 100.5 at lockdown to help increase humidity. Humidity should be bewteen 40-60% but whatever number you choose keep it as consistent as possible on that number. At lockdown raise the humidity to 65-70% but try not to exceed 75%.

    Never trust one thermometer either, always use 3 different ones if you can.
