I gave up hatching about 8 months ago due to my absolutely atrotious last 2 hatches. But...I got the bug again and want to try again. This time I have an automatic egg turner. Ok...so heres what I don't get and can't find the answer to. Where are you checking the temp at? 99.5 at the top of the eggs? Also, when they go into lockdown, you take the turner out, right? So wouldn't the temp be lower on the screen than in the turners? Does the turner affect the temp inside the bator? I'm getting silkie eggs and I hear they are hard to hatch but I want some!!! So, any advice is greatly appreciated, desperately needed.
