    No, you shouldn't bump up the temp, you need to bump up the humididty.

    Yes this topic isn't really relevant to chicken behaviors.

    I say throw some more eggs in and try again! Make sure you have a gauge that tracks both temp and humidity. What kind of incubator are you using?

    In that still air you are looking for a temp of 101.5 and around 40% humidity for the first 18 days, then bump up to 60-65% humidity. Those still airs can be a real bugger to get hatches in, just my opinion. Keep trying!

    Not bothering us just need a little more info before we can really help. Have you tried candling to look for movement? When are the other eggs due to hatch? How long was the temp high? All might not be lost, if it was only a few hours, (mine were 109 for probably 4-5 hours and are still ok so far).
