    Ok I have multiple eggs in my bator, all due at different times. I just put my Silkies in and I'm having a rough time with this still air bator! :thThe silkies when they lean to the sides are coming in at 98... I have yet to see when it comes up straight, but this can in no way be good... When they move to straight up, I think it'll go to 101-102 for the large eggs and 100 for the silkies... is this ok?

    What should i do?

    I have another bator (without the auto turner it was a reptile bator but is the same thing) that I was going to set up for the eggs for hatching... if I get any. So I figured that would take care of the need to remove the turner...

    With temps reading differently all over the bator it is possible your hatch could go a day or two late on some eggs. Good luck!
