    First timer! Added my eggs to my homemade bator today that was holding a steady 99.5 before eggs added, after I added them it won't go over bout 96.4 been this way 5 hrs. How long should I wait or go ahead and adjust temp?

    its a game of patience. wait until morning, it wont matter too much tonight if its too cool. If its still like that in the morning then adjust. It took mine a day to get back up to temp, it has to warm the eggs all throughout. :)

    After adding eggs, the temperature will drop. I wait 24 hours before adjusting anything.
