    Just got my incubator running yesterday, has been running for the last 24hrs and heres what its doing. Temps are holding with a 7 degree swing(95-102) and the "wiggler" is holding a constant 98. Will this give me a good hatch, or is that 99.5 set in stone? Thanks

    They would hatch late. Cant really say how much it would affect hatch rates but I would assume it would still be high. I would try to get the wiggler to read 99. something.

    What kind of incubator?

    99.5 -100.5 would be a much better aim.

    especially if it is a home made get the temps straight before loading it. it will make for a more successful hatch.
