    I just set up my hovabator, I believe its refered to as a forced air One (it has a fan) no self Turner in it. But its been running and holding a temp that varies between 99.0 at the lowest and 100.1 at the highest but it is usually between 99.4 and 99.6 ..... Is that an ok temp for me to set eggs in? Also how often should I turn them and do I just set them in the incubator? Thank you! Any help is great!
