Bill,
I have never incubated eggs at 80F. They might have hit that temp once or twice during incubation on a hot day, but never the entire duration. I have known a few people that incubated that high and have had problems. Any where from 70-78F will work with cresties, IMO 75-77F being the best (just like it is with adults). I have been doing this for a few years now and have never lost an egg and they turn out to be perfect adults. Have you ever raised them up or do you just sell them off. Reason I ask is there might be a possibility of Hot females or stunted adults caused by long periods of high temps. They might hatch out and look fine, but you do not know what is going on inside. So I just play it safe and incubate the eggs at temps the adults should be kept at. After all if 80F can stress out an adult over long periods of time, I donít think it is any better for the egg.
