    What is the room it's in like? Drafty, hot, cold? I had to move my incubator twice to stabilize the temp. Also is the thermometer high or low in the incubator? I am not familiar with that model.
    I have a digital thermometer that makes me crazy. It's up down and all over the place. The regular one barely changes at all. I have seen people in here with three in at the same time. Hopefully some one with more experience will chime in.
