    I have several eggs in my 1588 that are about a week along. I added a couple dozen yesterday new eggs, and of course the temperature dropped since I put so many room temp eggs in there. Will the temp eventually get up to what it was before or will the addition eggs cause a difference in the thermomstat?

    It should go up if not, just turn it up a little.

    halo, do not make adjustments if you had it set to the right temp. It will come up gradually..I would give it several hours. I am sure it didn't drop too much (not below 90) and will come up within an hour or two at most.
