    Does the termp in the incubator raise when the chicks are more developed. My temps ran between 99.9 and 100.6 (LG Still air) Since lastnight its been running 101.5 I am on day 16 is this because the chick is more developed?

    Yes, i think as they grow they start to put off heat of their own. Then after some hatch and start running about the bator, they really start to warm things up. [​IMG]
