    I have returned home from work to a thermometer reading 103 degrees. When I left it was at 99.5, but because of the huge temperature swings in Florida (cold mornings and hot afternoons) The hova bator has the most difficult regulating temperature. Any one have any experience with this extremes?

    I am going to assume your incubator is a still air incubator.

    They can survive 103 but if it stays that high to long it can kill them.

    Yes, unfortunately still air. Ordered a fan, but it still hasn't arrived. Thank you for your post.
