    I have a redwood box incubator. It has an auto temp regulator and also a temperature gauge and hydrometer. What temp and humidity should be set? The instructions say to keep 99 degrees on temp gauge and with the hydrometer keep at 82-85 until pip. Sounds a bit high to me. Also the egg trays tilt and eggs are tilted once ever hour. Is that too much? Since I have several Maran eggs with others will I have problems with hatching them? I read they have to have a higher temp and humidity then others.
