    I followed directions from the forum about making a bator, and last spring hatched out 5 of 12 pheasant eggs. I didn't like the hot water heater thermostat so I used a water bed thermostat. I put everything back together, plugged it in to see what was going on, and am getting temps between 97and 101.5, The humidity stays at 20%. I have two water bottles inside for a heat sync, and two jelly jars with water for humidity. Should I have a different water supply for humidity to raise it some. This year I will be hatching chickens, and I already have the eggs, and need to get them in the bator soon. Help me. Thanks
