    My humidity is good, It is 76 but my temp is slightly low at 99.3 is this anything to worry about?

    Keep in mind I am fairly new at hatching eggs but I would think 99.3 is fine. Doesn't seem like .2 would make too much difference.

    Did you check with a second reliable thermometer if the temp is right?

    Quote:x2 chicks so close to hatching aren't as sensitive to temp changes compared to eggs at earlier stages of development.

    That must be SUPER cute to watch

    My bator is running 99.3 to 100.2 I am afraid to touch it for fear of being even more off than that. I think 99.3 is fine.​
