You want it between 101-102 with the happy medium of 101.5. (Temps taken near the top of the egg. That temp near the bottom would be too high.) I would try to keep it under the 102 and humidity in the 30-40% with monitoring the air cell for certainty.

I do not use the vent plugs and have mine open for the duration of the hatch.
