You had the temp like that after they hatched or now? sorry.
after the eggs hatch temp should be 100 degrees, then start to lower 4 to 5 degrees a week.

Good luck with your hatch.

Now the eggs are incubating at 100F so you say the chicks should be at 100F after they hatch?

I cant help you much, my first ones hatched last night.....but....
What do you use to candle with? All I can do is tell if the egg is dark or clear and I stopped trying that after I broke 2 of them.

Leave the bator at 100 and remove chicks to brooder after they dry out. Keep at 100 for a week or so then start backing down 5 degrees a week

Thanks for the info.I just used a carboard box and put 2 very potent torches that I got from a friend of mine. and I can see some veins and a black round thing.Also I do it in a very dark room.
