    So it's day 14 for my batch of eggs. I candled them a bit ago and they all appear undeveloped for being 14 days, granted they one's that didn't get picthed appear healthy and moving. According to my thermo it's been 99-100 most of the time. Think I should turn it up a bit, maybe another .5? Any thoughts in general?

    I think your temps are fine. I had some at lockdown look less developed than the others but I have 19 hatched and 2 pipped out of 23 eggs.

    Your incubator temperature is just fine. Relax - you have a week to go! [​IMG]

    Ok thanks. [​IMG] I calibrated my thermo with the ice method, thought it might still be a little off. Come on one more week!
