Granted my experience is limited to about 6 hatches - but I have not had any problems when the temp slips to 101. So I don't think you need to worry. good luck.

Well Marc81 I don't think you have anything to worry about at all /1 the egg temp takes longer to heat up but 101 is not a killer temp at all for a short period of time.if you have a still air that is what they say to incubate at/I just had my worst spike ever on day 18 went up to 106/made me sick but I candled and still have movement and a pip today on day 19/so I am sending you good hatching vibes and good luck!!!
