    Yes play with it, it's a great bator and certainly could reach ideal temps.

    I have a Dickie and for some reason if I run it at 99.5 the hatches take 22 days.I bumped mine up to 99.9 and have been getting my hatches on day 21.It could be my themometor.I have been using the one that came with the Bator.I love my Dickie bator.I have had very good hatches with it.
