    The temperature in my homemade incubator ranges from 98 to 102. Will this be good enough to give me a chance at a good hatch?

    I do have a fan in the bator, but it only turns on when the unit is heating.

    Assuming I can maintain that 4 degree difference, is the 98 - 102 good enough, or should I try for 97-101?

    I noticed my incubator ranges between 98.4 and 100.4 (forced air). I have not tried to hatch anything yet, but will set next week, I hope.
