    Ok I set some eggs in the incubator on december25 and had the temp at 102 (according to the stick theomometer that came with the still air incubator) and I bought a digital one tonight and put it in there. I went and checked it and it said 106 which is awful! I candled all the eggs and it looked like a vaines in there but it was only one big one on a few of them. Will these eggs hatch or will they die after a while? I have set the temp down to 102 now.

    mother nature realized that humans are not as smart as a chickens butt so she fairly forgiving as long as it didn't get over 115 you should be fine.
