    What temp do I hatch chicken eggs at? I went to set the incubator up as shipped eggs arrived today so setting them tomorrow and my mind has gone blank - pregnancy and clingy baby have resulted in an 18m break from hatching anything and rusty isn't the word hahaha! A quick refresher would be really appreciated! Gonna go with dry incubation method as this has worked well for me in the past, but just need a quick reminder on the temp.

    TIA

    If your doing still air you need 101, but if your bator has a fan 99.5.

    I loaded eggs into a still air incubator last night. This morning the temp was 104! I am so nervous. Hoping for no harm. I have the temp down to 99.5 I am confused because I have seen conflicting info on what the temp should be ranging from 99.5-101.5.
