    My incubator holds 240 eggs so you can imagine how long it takes me to load it or candle. I pull the trays out wich holds 30 eggs each. Even when I do this it takes a while to put the trays in. Sometimes my temp goes down to like low 90's. Could this be hurting me drastically? Any one else with cabinet style or not please let me know your thoughts? Thanks

    I just added 139 RIR or Black Sex-Link eggs and 17 Ringneck Pheasant and my temp went down to like 91
