    Regardless of what the temperature is set on, my downstairs always drops to about 65F at night. Is this too low for my eggs to get? They'll be settling until about noon tomorrow, then I'll be putting them into the bator. So anyways do I need to bring them upstairs close to an air vent to keep their temp a lil higher? Thanks (=

    Before you put the eggs in the bator, they should be at least room temperture, 70*. And if the room you are going to incubate in drops to 65* at night, you should reconsider palcing your bator there. The bator should be kept in a room with an even 70* around the clock.
