    I don't know what's "proper" - I just keep mine on the countertop. I had some friends who bred and sold hundreds of chicks a year for many years, and that's what they did. I figure if it worked for them, it's good enough for me! =)

    The hatching 101 article in my signature discusses it.

    Ideal temps are around 60F. If the eggs get hotter than around 85F you will trigger cell division.
