    Is it okay for the temp to fluctuate from 99.9-100.1? I feel like it won't hurt because it's such a small change and it's not constet. But never hurts to ask right haha

    I am no expert, but from my experience of hatching a temperature fluctuate as small as that shouldn't be a problem.

    Hi there would be slight fluctuations when the mother hen is incubating so it will do no harm. I have had these kinds of fluctuations in hatches with a 100% success rate.

    That's kind of what I thought. But just asking for advice. I've only hatched once before this a few years back.
