    When you first put the eggs in the incubator does the temp rise or fall temporarily?

    Falls and then regulates after 24 hours or so. Once it is set, dont adjust it when you add the eggs unti lthe bator has had time to warm up all the eggs and environment

    tiki,

    even at 101.5 you will be fine with the serama eggs. just try to keep it between 99.5-100.5 ref to egg temp /air temp will very between incubators...

    OK thanks Frank,
    So far so good, I put them in at 7:15 and humidity is 50% right now. I just plugged in a humidifier in the room.
