    I just set 16 eggs at 8:00 this morning and now am in for the 21 day wait. I will have to turn them by hand for this batch and I am hoping that all will go good. I know that my temp is going to be a problem for a bit I am going to have to get a 25 watt bulb for I am sure that the 15 watt one that I am using is not going to be enough. The temp was 99.7 this morning when I set them and that was after it sat all night. I really hope this will work.

    my temp is between 98 to 101 and my humidity is low at 35% to 45% working on trying to get it up to 50%. I don't have much room in the bottom for anything at the time. UPDATE:I have got my humidity up to 50%
