I try to set mine up at least a full week before my females lay their eggs. This gives me time to dial in the temps with as little fluctuation as possible. I check the temps 3-4 times a day for the first 3 days. I then add in several containers with moist vermiculite. The temps change a little when the containers are added. Again I check the temps 3-4 times a day and keep fine tuning so I can keep a constant 82 degrees. Try to find an area in a room that does not change very much throughout the day from the outside temps. I set my hovabators up in the corner of one room away from a window. It stays fairly constant. This really isn't much trouble and will prevent deformities that are due to temp changes like kinked spines and tails.
:I have recently purchased a hovabator to incubate my corn snake eggs in. I wanted to know what i have to do before i can incubate the eggs in it. I think i remember reading somewheres that you close off the holes and put water in the bottom but i am not sure. Any advice or instructions would be good.
