Will they hatch if temp went down on the day they were due to hatch?

This is my first try at hatching chickens. Twenty hatched yesterday and the. Over night the dial for the thermostat must have been bumped and the temp dropped a few degrees. Do they still have a chance? I'm so sad and worried?

Do you have any that didn't hatch yet?  Get the temp back up where is belongs - I don't think it was low enough, long enough to adversely affect your hatch. But in general cooler temps  may delay hatch date a little.

 

Have you moved the dry chicks to a brooder with heat lamp?

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
