    I have quail eggs in my hovabator and it seems that the thermometer/hygrometer combo is malfunctioning. It was fine this morning but now it's saying that the himidity is 10% which is not true. I opened it for a sec and could feel the humidity. The temps have been holding steady at 99.5-99.8 and now it's reading 100.8. I turned it down just a tiny bit to be on the safe side.

    I ordered a new one but it won't be here until Saturday. I'm trying not to freak out but i am so worried about those little eggs. They are on day 5.

    Any advice or words of wisdom anyone can offer would be so appreciated.

    Hovabator has a fan and eggs are in an auto turner which are both working.
