    I set the temperature as indicated for my new Dickey. It seems to vary quite a bit by about 1 degree plus or minus. I re-calibrated it once. Is this normal and should it be a concern for the eggs?

    I've had to adjust mine some too. It's usually when the humidity goes up or down.

    I don't have a Dickey but I do have a Sportsman. Try adjusting the vents.
