    I got a little giant still air incubator! Getting ready to save my little eggs! I'm regulating it now! Any tips? I wanna know how to keep it up at 99.5oF for them!

    Buy a different thermometer than the one in the package. Also get a hygrometer to measure the humidity. With the LG, it is extremely important to have it in a room that is completely draft free. Best of luck.

    I am so glad to read this. Indeed your mom is the coolest!

    Get a better thermometer and hydrometer than the one that comes in the box. You can find fairly descent ones by accurite at walmart.

    Good luck with your quail eggs!

    I have one I bought last year and it holds temps great. I used it as a second back up bator before I bought my sportsman. Good luck and give your Mom a big hug!

    For still air you want 101.5ish, unless quail are different than chickens [​IMG]
