Newbie here. Need advice. I am going to set my first batch Sunday into a new circulated air incubator. And plan on using a different still air for lock down. The circulated air temp is set for 99.5 and I believe the still air is 101.5. yes I know I need to get the humidity up for hatching.

Question is: Is this the temp I want to use for hatching in the still air where they used to the cooler circulated air?

Other option I could add a fan to the still air.

thanks in advance

I incubate with still air incubator at around 101,5 or so. It is supposed to be slightly higher than with circulated air. Personally, I do not increase the humidity for hatching. It depends perhaps where you are and the type of your incubator.
