When incubating for males it is still advisable to reduce the temperature a bit after 2 weeks to reduce the risk of egg mortality.


And on the other side of the spectrum, I wonder if anyone has tried temp sexing males and then dropping the temperature to 80* for the rest?

:"Hot Females" (which the only thing wrong with them is that they mature much slower) are produced by tempertures over 90F for the incubation period where sex is determined. To get hot females you would have to incubate at over 90F for at least the two weeks that the gender is determined.

:Josh-Good point, thats right, its just like incubating for males, but you would get females. If anything "cheating" using this method would only happen to incubating for female because of the jump from 80F to 90F, but I believe this is not cheating as well.
