    i have 5 eggs in a storage box with a heat lamp over top. I would like to know how high(or low) do i need the heat to have the eggs hatch? one is hatching right this second and two newborns are in the same box. in thebox right next to it there are three week olds....which are also sharing the same heat lamp as the eggs. So how hot should the box be with the eggs and how holt for the week olds? thanks in advanced:D

  4. Hi! Your situation sounds like an unusual one.
    101.5 degrees at egg height is the temp to aim for incubating.

    Week-old hatchlings can tolerate a range of temps, but still need a warmish (85 degree) refuge.

    I don't understand your questions exactly.
    I wish you luck,
