    Your temps stays the same from day one to day 21....whatever the temps reading is suppose to be for your incubator...

    the only thing you increase on day 18 is the humidity....

    Your incubator has wells or troughs under the wire you set the eggs on and should be filled according to the directions with the bator.. you should have a temp/hygrometer to measure your temps and humidity readings from day one.....
