You asked why a lower temp for the hatcher and I opened my mouth & said I have data  :laugh:

Hatching

    As hatching is done at a higher humidity and lower temperature than incubation, a separate hatcher is usually required. A glass or transparent front or top of the hatcher will assist in monitoring the hatch without disturbing the hatching environment. The hatcher should operate at 95f (35c) with a wet bulb at 90f (32c) or higher. A high humidity is helpful for slightly softening the egg shell membrane, making pipping and escape easier. The lower temperature reflects the additional heat being generated by the chick as it prepares for pipping and changes over from amniotic to pulmonary breathing. Some operators sprinkle the egg with warm water during the transfer from incubator to hatcher. This gives the egg a start by slightly softening the shell membrane.

But wouldn't the lowering of heat+the extra heat from chicks=the normal temperature?  :laugh: hehehe

For instance in a preset...it would be unnoticable since the thermostat will auto adjust. And on a manual, one would turn down the temp to keep it constant when the chicks do add more heat. ?

There ya go, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
I don't plan on changing any of my settings. I have no complaints on my hatches. It would be my luck if I changed my setting I would wind up screwing myself.

I look at it this way, If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all.
