I just bought a Dickey's incubator. Huge improvement over the Styrofoam incubators I have been using. My problem is that the temps in the incubator at the door, where the thermometer is, is not the same as the temperature at the hatching tray on the bottom. I have the temperature at the door hovering around 99.5 degrees, confirmed with 2 other digital thermometers. When I place those other two thermometers in other places in the cabinet, I find that the hatching tray on the bottom is consistently 97 degrees while the door thermometer indicates 99.5 degrees. Is this going to be a problem for hatching the eggs? do your cabinet incubators exhibit this same issue?
I have eggs in the trays at the moment so it is difficult for me to measure the exact temps in the trays. well actually, I just set some eggs in the hatcher so I should have room. I will follow up with those findings.
