    You will not be able to see it turn, but if you have watched over several hours and it hasn't moved, thats not good. Turning by hand three times a day is an option :(

    I agree, with everything I have read.. it does seem abit high. Should be 99.3-99.6F by my incubator manual. Or if your in Canada like me, its 37.4-37.6C.
