    Okay, so a couple of chicks are hatching, but the temperature dropped a little. It is now hovering at 98. Do you think this is okay for the next day or two while they all hatch? PLEASE HELP!!

    Thanks!

    Try and raise it even a little, 98 should be fine I think, but if possible try and get it back up to the correct temperature.

    Some people drop the temp. to 98 for the hatch. Shouldn't hurt much. I've had better luck with keeping it at the same temperature I used for incubating the eggs. You can try raising it if you don't think fiddling with it will cause your temp. to spike.

    Good luck
