I'm a teacher and am hatching 6 eggs in a hova bator. I've been doing a good job keeping the humidity up and the temperature steady. This weekend, however, the church that owns the building our school is in turned the heat off - I had no idea that was going to happen. I came in to find the incubator at 61.4 degrees. I immediately did what I could to get the temperature back up. I am very upset.
So I have two questions:
1. Will my chicks still hatch? (they're at day 12 today)
2. How can I prevent this from happening again? Can I insulate the incubator over the weekend? I live too far away to bring it home.
