    Temp may drop a bit since the eggs will be cooler than the air. Once they are up to temp it will stabalize. Humidy should stay same.

    What kind of bator do you have? I have a hova-bator forced air, keeps temp and humidity really good. I have an LG still air, the temperature is always dropping and rising. I haven't had any problems yet with the temp problems, but it could cause problems.
