    Still air around 101.5 Circulated air 99.5

    Remember, the temperature will vary from time to time. You take the high and the low and then average them.

    It depends on where you read the temperature. If down between the eggs on a turner( about half the egg height) the temp is 99.5; if the reading is taken on top of the eggs 102, especially if eggs are upright.

    You can see a pic on CHookschick's page to see where she locates the fish tank thermometers on the turner for a clearer understanding.
