    ok, my first hatch was using a forced air LG.

    now i'm using a still air hova...

    the question is.....
    since they are now on the wire along with with 2 thermometers, should the temp still be 101-102 or should it be more around the 100 range?

    also, as a side thought, the bated at 50 percent humidity, and i filled all the reserviors, but can't get the humidity past 65. is that ok?

    I would assume that taking the eggs out of the turner would put them in to lower, cooler air. I would think it was safer to leave the thermostat be than to try to adjust to the change.

    There was a thread on here the other day about dropping the temp at end a degree or two an how it may help chick health.

    65% is good
