Do the hatching eggs increase in temp as they grow?

    It seems that the temperature started to rise in the bator (day 6), but I have not changed anything.... so I'm thinking that as the eggs develop they increase in temperature and therefore the bator is warmer. Is this true? [​IMG]
  2. Could it be that your bator found its stable temp? Mine was running at 99 for a couple days, then went to 100 and stayed there for the rest of the time.

    The temps will raise as the baby grows. Or I have found this to be the case with my hatches.[​IMG]
