Then last night the light came unplugged for a few hours and the temp got down to 72. The eggs were ice cold. I got the temp back up as fast as I could, but I think, overall, I'm just not determined enough to do this. Too many things have gone wrong, so my optimism is diminishing which each day. And those 2 rotten eggs that were in there made the whole thing stink, so I'm even less inclined to deal with it.
I'm so sorry to hear ... but keep going there maybe a little life that is depending on you. Have you candled yet if I'm counting right, and I often don't ... you're at around day 15 ?
I only had a week of nursing my eggs to hatch day, but I can tell you I lost confidence when I lost my first one .... but then the magic happened, that internal peep-peep ... it truly is magical.
Sending you luck and strength vibes ....
