    :welcome!

    That is running high! Are you using a separate thermometer to check the temp or are you using one on the display? I'd check it against a separate one you know to be accurate if you're using the display - Brinseas are usually pretty accurate but it never hurts to be sure. A picture of it would also help so we could identify the model.

    Hello @pyxis thanks for your reply. I have 3 different thermometers in the incubator and they all are reading reasonablly accurate. I will attach pictures of the incubator.[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]
