    Ok. So I just got a new incubator, and the directions say to put it somewhere with a constant temperature of something like 65-72 F. In my house in Atl., the temp. stays above 80 this time of year. So, in order to reach 72, I would have to AC my whole house, which seems very silly if the incubator is at about 100 F anyway. So, why is it that the suggested temp. range is so low? Can I incubate in 80 F weather, or do I need to cool the whole house in order to heat up these eggs? Any help would be appreciated

    I live in Florida so its hot than 80 but as long as the bator is 100 and the humidity is right there is no problem.

    Thanks so much. I have some quail eggs on the way, and then I see that little fine print memo in the instructions and got worried.
