    During incubation, the temp was 100°F at the top of the eggs. When I removed the egg-turner in my still-air incubator, the temperature was lower on the screen than at the top of the egg-turner. (95°F)

    Should I raise the temperature of the incubator to adjust for this or leave it be.?

    Turn it up just a little bit, aim for 98-99*
