    I've been incubating silkie eggs... at 99.5 (circulating fan)
    but recently I've been noticing people incubating at 100 and 100.5 ...
    Anyone out there with a reason for the change.....?

    And is there any truth to higher temperatures create more roosters... haha..
    I heard that rumor, and just wondering if there is any truth to it...!

    How many days do you incubate before you stop turning them and then how long after that before they hatch
