This is my second time hatching eggs and the first time I had 8 out of 13 hatch. Not bad I guess for eggs that where shipped to me from northern california. I live in Iowa. This time I got a hygrometer, so I can watch my humidity levels closer. I've read that 45% to 50% is the ideal range and the last two day before hatch, raise it too 60% to 65%. Ok so I wasn't happy either with my thermometer so I went to Walmart and bought a digital thermometer that you take your temperature with it says it is accurate with in 0.02% You would think something you would take your childs temperature with would be really accurate so I started taking temperature reading and I'm having temperature swings from 98.2 to 101.3 So I'm guessing I am close to ideal temperature of 99.5 It is a havabator with a fan and egg turner. What does everyone else think of the temperature swing. Do you think I'm close. I'm on day 3 Any input would be greatly welcomed. Thanks.
