    I know it's supposed to be higher. I have the temperature at 100.0 exactly and the humidity is at 45.5%

    What should the temperature be for a still air?

    I try and keep mine between 100 and 102 better to be on the low side than the high. Being too low will usually only mean later hatcing date but too high can be fatal.
