    I have an incubator full of eggs and the temp is at a steday 98 degrees and humidity is around 60%. Should i be concerned the eggs have been in the bator since the 4th? It has been a steady 98 degrees since day one. This is the same bator that hatched 8 out of 12 eggs about a month ago. What do you think?

    The temp. should be around 99-100' and your humidity seems a little high, it should be around 40-50% the first 18 days. Good luck [​IMG]
