    I have a Little Giant, Still Air, no egg turner. My humidity is at 62% and temp 102, I read that in the still air to keep it at 102. But is lockdown different? Does it stay at 102 or should it be lowered to 99 or 100 or 101??? They are alive and moving in there but I don't want to jeopardize them any????

    [​IMG] Hello I just read your post. Im doing still air bator. My temp is about 101-102. Im fairly sure the temp stays the same. But the humidity goes up to 65% tops. But other people may have different veiws. Some may say the humidity should be 50-55% tops. Its what you feel happiest with.

    Good luck with the hatch. [​IMG] x
