    I need some help. My LG will run at steady right around 100 degrees all day, but come morning when I check it, its always around 98 degrees. How does everyone keep their bator steady at night with the house cooling off? I have it in the most temp stable room of our house, but its just not enough.

    Try putting it in a closet or small bathroom. I have books under my LG - it's in a bathroom with windows covered on NE corner of house. My temps stay pretty good. A tiny bit of fluctuation won't make too much difference- you just may get a slightly later hatch.

    You can cover it with a blaket at night.
