    I took my eggs out of the turner today. [​IMG]

    I have the humidly up to 70 but the temp on the eggs is 98. [​IMG]

    Do I need to turn the temp up because the eggs are now down in the bator more? [​IMG]

    Thanks again.

    If you can turn it up a tad or wrap a blanket or large towel around the bator but don't block the vents.

    You do not mess with your temps after taking the turner out, it will go down for awhile but should come back up.....

    When I remove the turner and take time arranging the eggs on the floor of the bator, it usually takes a few hours to come back up to the temp I have it set for, especially if there are alot of eggs in there; meaning, it took me awhile to get them all sat on the floor. So, if you adjust the thermostat, that could possibly make the temps go too high in a few hours. Just watch it closely if you've adjusted it upward already.
