    It's a Lyons Turn X classroom incubator. The wetbulb temp is 86 degrees (which is what the manual says it should be) but the manual also says the temperature needs to be at 100 degrees, and we're holding steady at 96. I haven't put any eggs in yet, because it says to wait 24 hours and also I thought that it would go up to 100 by now. Our home is in Southern California and 70 degrees is the norm here - also incubator is in a cabinet so no drafts etc. Should I try and turn up the temperature? Or should I wait a bit longer?

    Never mind, I reread the instructions and figured out how to turn it up :)
