    This information came from Marcia at Coast & Canyon Wildlife. She has 16 Petiatric incubators and has been using them for years. Her recommendations are as follows:

    Pinkies to approx. 3 weeks old: 90-93*F

    3 weeks till done with incubator: 86-88*F

    Injured/Sick adults: 80-83*F

    The one thing that she stressed (and she said it like 8 times)

    TOUCH AND FEEL THE BABIES WITH YOUR HANDS. IF THEY FEEL COOL, INCREASE THE TEMP, IF THEY FEEL HOT, LOWER THE TEMP.

    She also said if the babies are sick she may increase the temp by a degree or two if they seem to feel cool.

    Hope this helps!!!
