I don't want to kill any, 29 alive and moving.
Warm/cold spots will excellerate/delay development. My bator is forced and I still have many cool/warmer areas. I rotate my eggs so that they are not staying in the same warm/cold area for the duration of hatch. I'm an avid candler so I keep track of EVERYTHING...lol The eggs that seem to be a little more progressed I'll move to the known cooler areas and the ones that look behind, I switch to the warmer spots.
