I have a hovabator and the temp was at 100 varying a half a degree above and below. I do not have a humidity meter. I just followed the water instructions for the hovabator which is to fill one part with water the first 17 days then fill both parts for the remainder. I have a automatic turner which I removed and stopped turning the eggs on the 18th day. It does have a fan and yes they were shipped eggs from someone that is highly recommended even on this forum. I only let the eggs sit for a couple hours then put them in the bator.
