    I have a fairly steady temp of 99.5°F, but it sometimes goes to 99.0°F and 100.0°F

    its not completely finished, i still need a plexiglass lid and wire mesh to sit the eggs on, im just checking the temp.

    im using my aquarium tank lid as a lid on this, it fits perfectly [​IMG] but i need it for my mice(i keep pet mice in it) so im going to buy plexi-glass anyway

    the humidity is 43%

    i dont plan to set eggs until mid december [​IMG]
