Temperature fell during the afternoon!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a still air incubator that I made and it's day 2 for my eggs and during the day yesterday my temperature fell in my house causing the temperature in the incubator for fall to 93.5 F at it's lowest point when I got home at 4:45pm. It would have started falling around noon. I then got it back up and balanced over about 2 hours.

 

Any thoughts on the impact this will have on the eggs? They are chicken eggs.

I think you will be ok as long as it doesn't repeatedly happen. I've had power outages... One last year lasted 6 hours and temp fell to low 80s and took several hours after temp came back on to get eggs back to correct temp.

Some days you just have to put on the hat and remind them who they are dealing with. Release the flying monkies!

Thank you. This is my first time trying to hatch, so I am glad to hear.
