I was wondering if any one could give me some info? I have a lil giant still air. The room its in is the best room possible small window no sun and no drafts. So every morning my temp has seemed to drop through the night, drops to about 99.3 then couple hours later it goes back up. Is this normal? I heard a still air should be at 101.5 is this correct. My eggs are at day 15 and are doing pretty well from what I can see.

Welcome to BYC!

That is the problem with still air. The temp varies. You are shooting for temps between 100 and 101 at egg height. You might want to check out an article in our learning center on incubating eggs. I believe there is some talk on still air incubators...

Good luck with your hatch and keep us posted!

Then you did pick the best room in the house sounds
like you are doing just fine now the big thing is do you
see any movement in the egg when you candle the
egg and how about veins can you see any this are
all positive signs
