    With my LG still air I like to try to get 100-101 and Im shooting for a semi dry incubation with my humidity 40-45% for the first 18 days and 55-60% for 19-21. But Im new at this and so far Im on day 12 for one egg and day 8 or so for 14. So time will tell.

    I agree, but have a Hova-Bator turbo fan and keep the temp at 99-100 with a 38-40% humidy (try method). Will change the humidy at day 18 to 65%.
