I hope I can get a bit of help with a temp issue I have please.
Got fertilised eggs yesterday (from a neighbour). I'd set my mini incubator running the night previous at a temperature of 37.7 and filled the well with water.
I put the eggs in yesterday and added a mini humidity/temperature meter. The eggs had been in the incubator two hours before I realised the temperature on the mini meter read 47.1 degreesC!
I quickly tried to reduce the temp on the incubator to stabilise it and hopefully get a matched reading. I also popped in a childs thermometer and that was reading a few degrees lower than the mini meter but higher than the incubator. So I'm stuck.
Have I maybe fried the eggs on day one if the mini meter reading was correct at 47.1degC? Or will I hopefully have a chance. ?
I seem to have stabilised the reading on the incubator along with the mini meter and thermometer (give or take a just a few celsius between the three).
Should I just wait until candling day next week and hope for the best?
Any help is much appreciated.
