    is 100.9-101.3 an ok temp for a still air, I finaly stablized it there and that is the closest I can get to the recomended 101-102.

    i would say that it's absolutely fine. if anyone speaks against me i won't throw a fit, opinions on such things vary from person to person. but in all honesty i think it will be okay as long as you have the thermometer close to the eggs.

    Great, thanks guys! And the thermometer/Hydrometer is level with the top of the eggs.
