    This morning, i checked the bator temp and it was at 98 degrees (F) and i didnt have enough time to adjust the thermostat AND make sure that it got up to the right temp ( i was running late), so i just turned it up a little bit. I just got home and the temp is still 98, will they be ok?

    Shouldn't do any harm at all.

    They will hatch at 98. No worries.

    Just curious - what incubator are you using? My new Brinsea keeps going down to 98.8.... I just find it odd.

    Sex of birds is genetic. Temp has nothing to do with it.
