    Ok, so I have a Little Giant 9200 still air incubator. I've set it up and am trying to get the temp stedy before I put the eggs in. It fluctuates from 97 to 100...is that ok??

    There is a lot written on this. Use the search function to find out
    TONS of stuff about your bator. I'm not trying to be rude but there
    is no way someone can type it all here.


    You want your base temp to be 100.5 if you don't have the fan kit.
    This is assuming your thermometer is accurate. An empty 9200
    will swing a lot. Once you put eggs in it should stabilize. Put two
    full water bottles in it and wait 3 hours for the water to heat up. It
    should help.
