What should I have my temp at when the chicks are starting to hatch and or have hatched and there in my incubator. My wife is worried that the chicks inside the incubator may get too hot if the temp is left at 100 once chicks are out of the egg and if chicks hatch and others haven't should the temp stay the same?

Nothing they are fine they will just walk around the eggs they wont do anything to them, they'll leave them at peace to hatch

But the 100 degree temperature won't harm them? It's a still air incubator little giant model. They stay in that temp how long?
