You can do either. But I always try to avoid letting it hatch with mom, simply because rounding up all the little ones can be a real pain in the backside. Hatching in an incubator means they are all contained.

Now when to pull is another thing.... pulling early means the eggs will develop a little slower (IME) but pulling early also means that you can eliminate the possibility of the sac either going bad or being eaten. It only takes one egg to go bad and it quickly spreads and can decimate a large part of the sac, or the entire thing.

I never worry about temps when incubating, obviously the warmer they are kept, he faster things develop, but I have had no less success, even at 70f....I just suggest keeping things at room temp unless things are below 70f. 80f is probably close to an ideal temp in terms of fast development (IME)

Have you bred the avic or bought it as an adult female? If not, it is a dud. If you bought it as an AF there is a chance it's a dud.
