    I have a hovabator 1602 which i added my own fan...added my eggs yesterday the temperature is at 99.1 i know 99.5 is ideal but i don't know how to get it there you barely touch the thermostat and it goes to 102 so i don't want that....I have the vents open and humidity is at about 37%

    99.1 is fine. Most never get to the ideal 99.5
