    Temp in still air bator is 99.1. Hate to lower it but chicks are panting and I have 1 left who just pipped. If the chicks are too hot will it kill them to wait? Also not all the chicks are fluffy.

    You can either give them another 6 hours OR
    Quickly remove all of the fluffy ones and add warm water to the bator.
