    Hi! I'm no expert, having hatched five or six times successfully - but if the thermometer says the right temperature and the humidity is correct, then I would just take a deep breath and step away from the incubator!! [​IMG]

    If it is a chicken egg and you are on day 22 you should turn the heat down to 98 so it can hatch. If you meant duckling then I suggest that youturn it down to 99 if you fear that it is to hot.. Good luck!

    Quote:I'm going to have to agree, when you say "HOT" do you mean hot like a hot potato? Or just very warm? My temp is at 100.2 and my eggs feel very warm but not HOT to where i can't even touch them.
