    My husband and I have just started and built our own incubator. The temperature, 99.5, is that C or F?

    incubation is 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit . 99.5 degrees Celsius is like the heat of the Sun, well, maybe not that hot.[​IMG]

    Mrs. Stewart here -- Thank you all for your answers, I really appreciate them. We were able to change our monitor to F and that made things much easier.
