    Use the search tool for this. Many variables go into the right temps and humidity. You'll find all the answers using the search and "incubation temp"

    Quote:In a still air .. about 101-102F at the top of chicken eggs.

    In a forced air, 99.5

    Humidity 45-50% for 17 days, then 65-70% to end.
