    is the temperature supposed to be 90 or 100?
    I am running the hovabator genesis 1588. Should I get a hygrometer or would I be ok to just trust it to work?

    im pretty sure it has to be 100, but Im only getting 90...is it because im using an auto turner? or does it take awhile for the eggs to warm up?? I dont get it.
    last time around everything was perfect

    99-101 is perfect. just add water during lockdown. Humidity isn't as important during the first 18 days. The humidity should be around 40% the first 18 days, then raise it to 60-70%.
