    fan in bator =forced air should the temperature be 100 degrees

    and no fan=still air should temperature be 102 degrees

    Humidy 58% to 60% or 86 degrees

    and on the 21 day increase to 65%

    Is this correct?

    Is this for Chicken eggs? The temps are right I keep my humidity at 45% the first 18 days then bring it up to 65% till they hatch.

    I do what Poison Ivy does.
    Humidy 58% to 60% or 86 degrees

    and on the 21 day increase to 65%

    Is this correct?

    86 degrees wet bulb, probably, not actually 86 degrees.

    I never let my humidity go over 50% the first 18 days. It fluctuates between 35-50, but most often between 40-50 with the average being 45%. Then I raise to 65-70, but never over 70%, unless its because the chicks are raising it themselves as they begin hatching.​
