    I just received my new incubator, a Hovabator Genesis 1588. My wife (who must be obeyed) does not want the incubator in the house. I do have a finished basement, but since we don't use it as often, I maintain the temperature there at 68 degrees. Is that temperature ok for me to place my incubator in? Thanks in advance.

    The directions that came with your incubator should say what temps are okay.
