    What kind of bator are you working with? Does it have forced air are not? Those temps are not to high. If you do not have forced air I beleive its 102 you want to set the temps to.

    I have never used a water wiggler but with the temps you mentioned you will not over heat your eggs. If you want to double check this you could do a search for water wiggler just to make sure but it seems like I remember the water wiggler is supposed to calculate the temps inside the egg. Good luck and have fun with your hatch. What are you trying to hatch?

    I have orps and they are easy to get to hatch. I've never tried ducks yet. Have fun with it. Is this your first time hatching?
