    So I got my silkie eggs today [​IMG] and my bator has been up and running for days. I have one problem though. I have 4 therms in it testing the temp. One is a standard and every time I look at it it reads 100 fine with me. The one in the wiggle worm never got over 100 and the others registered a high of 107. [​IMG] They have never been that high when I look at the bator though always at around 100. Just the memory reads at that temp high.

    Queston is, would it be ok to put the eggs in with the wiggle worm giving me a temp of never over 100?

    Hova bator 1602 with a fan. It was my cousin and she had great hatches out of it. I had great success with my homemade one but wanted to try with this.
