my homemade bator only reaches 97 degrees is this warm enough?
Not really. Do you have a fan in it or is it still air? Still airs need to be 101-102 degrees and circulated air with a fan 99.5/100.
Tell us about your incubator. What watt bulb are you using? When you say "only reaches"... so the light never goes out and that's as high as the temps get? Are you using a thermostat or dimmer?
You really need to get to 99-100 *average* temps... if you have a circulating fan.
No, Thats not enough
Goodluck bringing up the temp
If you are using a light bulb for the heat, try a larger wattage light bulb. You can also try wrapping the incubator in a blanket to get the heat up. Or, you might have to wait until Spring when temps are higher in the room where your incubator is....
At best you will have a late hatch and a poor one. At worst you will have all of that plus some deformities. Get it to the correct temp if you can
