    From what I have read, everyone says to get rid of the thermometer that comes with the incubator. I have one that I got from Walmart that displays the temp and humidity. A couple more button pushes shows the hi and low temps and humidity. It costs like $6.

    I don't have the experience to tell you what might happen with your eggs. It may depend on the timing. I would finish the cycle just in case some may be okay.
