    I set a batch of eggs in my incubator on May 4th. I noticed that on May 8 the temp was at 98 instead of 100 - i had to adjust the stat and did so. Beginning May 8 the temp was a steady 100 it never went over 100. Do you think I have any chance of the eggs hatching?

    Depends how long it stayed low. I've had temps fluctuate between 98-103 before and still had some success with hatching. Good luck.

    Low temps for a long period of time will just mean your hatch could take longer...your okay.....
