    It can take an incubator 24 to 48 hours to come back to temp after you have put the eggs in (time depends upon the number of eggs). Personally I like to have my bator run for 48 hours before setting the eggs - so I can check for temp swings - the season of the year can cause the bator to run warmer or cooler.

    Once the temp is stable, and eggs added - I do not touch or adjust the temp. - give the bator time to heat back up.
