    I got a still air little giant incubator for Christmas and really want to hatch some eggs. I've read that for still air incubators the temperature needs to be 101 but have also read on other places that it needs to be 99.5. Which one is it? How high does the humidity need to be? Any tips or tricks would be appreciated.

    Hi there. There is a little giant thread for tips and tricks around here somewhere. Still air 101-102 . Forced air 99.5.. set it up in the most temperature stable room, let it run until you have it at the correct temp and it stays stable for at least 24 hours, 30-40% humidity is fine first 18 days. Turn the eggs three times a day the first 18 days, and go read all youvcan here about little giants and hatching and chick care.
