    Just wondering if the temp is suppose to be 99.5 in a still air incubator just like in a forced air incubator? My fan stopped working in my incubator with 7 days left before the eggs hatch. Hope they make it!!!

    Do a search on still air temps. I am pretty sure that it is at least a degree higher in still air incubators. Good luck on your hatch! [​IMG]
    ETA - Just did a search and still air should be set to 101.5 to 102 degrees

    I kept my still air in the 101 range at the top of the eggs.
