    I have 3 rhea eggs in my bator . I also have 4 game/buff brahma eggs in the bator as well . Well chicken egg temp s 99.5 and rhea temp is 97.0 / my incubator is at 99.5 . The rhea eggs are showing veins . Will the 2 degree difference effect the rhea eggs ?

    what do you guys think ?

    I don't know for sure but I would think having the incubator temperature somewhere in between would work. Good luck hatching!

    it might make the others hatch early but if you have it to low for the chickens they might hatch late

    Most incubators have cooler spots in them. Try moving your thermometer around to different areas, especially corners away from heat/fan to see if yours does as well.
