    I m new in incubating eggs. I ve put my first eggs for hatching. Temperature on screen shows that has reached 99.5F but after putting a regular thermometer inside it shows only 95F!! (I have put the thermometer exactly on the egg tray) What shall I do? Should I increase that locked temperature 99.5 showed on the screen?

    definitely try to calibrate it. It's still air right?

    still air incubators your going to want to keep a little warmer 100.5 to 101.5 does the trick with still air incubators

    I hope I will not boil the eggs at the end!! :) I m just kidding. I guess maybe the thermostat of my incubator is at the bottom where the hot air flows and consequently the temperature in the incubator shows higher than the thermometer that I placed on the egg trays. So I will rise it to 101.5 as you said!
