    I recently bought a LG still air and have had 15 RIR in there for seven days. I candled today and see vein development but no embryo. I have a wet bulb thermometer on top of the eggs reading 101 and a digital on top of the turner reading 98. Humidity is at 40-50%. Should I crank the temps up so the digital at mid egg level reads 100 and top of the eggs reads 102-103? My Rcom three egg and Miss Prissy model both have embryonic development already. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Just because you do not see an embryo does not mean it is not in there. If you see veining your temps are good.

    Wait and re~candle on day 10 you will see a big differece in the eggs that are still developing. If you have any questionable eggs wait until you candle again on day 14 sometimes on certain ones I wait until day 18's candling, especially on the dark shelled eggs.
