So just about the first night in homemade incubator I have been waking up to check temp every 3 hour. I awoke to notice my incubator running at 106 I instantly opened and IR temped the egg shells at 104 the ones along the outside edges were still 99 Because it was first night. So my question is are the eggs that went up to 104 automatically dead or no? What are my chances? Either way on day 3 now been running steady since. I will post hatch results thanks for any tips.
