    I have a little giant incubator with a egg turner. When you place the thermometer on top of eggs and have your temp regulated to your set point and when its time to remove the egg turner at day 18. Do you have to readjust your temp because the eggs will be lower or leave it at the set point you started with? Thanks for any info.

    you dont need to adjust the temp anymore

    as matter of fact hatched chicks dont need to be at 99 - 100 º F anymore

    is good for them if temp is lower 97-98 ºF just in case you need to increase himidity lower temp is good
    dont worry you are ok
