Yes - they should be right. Since its a fan forced try to measure the temperature as close to the centre of the eggs as possible.

Well thats what you are after - the temperature in various parts of the incubator is largely irrelevant if the all eggs are at 37.7 and stay at that temperature.

Hi Kathy,
The little bit of blood on the navel is common and should clear up and dry out.
Dont stress to much yet, let him dry out in the bator and wait for his mates to hatch out.
Cheers
Trev

Great to here that you had a full hatch, the ones you lose later do happen
Good luck with the next batch
