    ahhh I put 12 eggs in my bator for the first time--now I know when the lid was opne to put the eggs in it would go down but it keeps going down? is this normal and how long does it take to stabilize--I dont want to play with the temp until I know I need to....the humidty went from 44 to 53% what do I do?

    LOL
    I just know that after you crank on the heat for awhile trying to get it to go up while thre are cool eggs in there when the eggs finally heat up you will most likey get a nice fat temp spike . So its best to leave it to get warmed up on its on.
