    I am moving my eggs from a GQF cabinet bator to a LG bator for hatchhing. The GQF does not have a window. Is the temp still 99.5 for lockdown? [​IMG] The LG is a still air so I wasn't sure if it needed to be a little warmer.... Thanks, Sharon

    For still air it needs to be 101 at the top of the eggs.

    For still air you aim for 100.5 to 101 at the top of the eggs depending on whether you have them laying down or up in a cup (flat - 100.5... cup/holder/carton - 101).

    Forced air... 99.5
