Hi all, my question is... I have eggs in the incubator and my electricity went off yesterday for 1 to 2 hours , when it came back on the temp was 83 . Do you think the eggs are still good ??
Are my eggs still good??

They should be. I have lost power for 10+ hours and still had eggs hatch and temps get in the 50's.
I have Bantam welsummers, Bantam Olive eggers, MGB, LF Welsummers, BCM, BLRW, LF Buff and Golden Laced polish x Tolbunt, LF Sumatras, Bantam Sumatras, d'anvers, CCL, Bantam wyndottes and bunch of free range birds
My guess is yes. I had an incubator go haywire on me with temps fluctuating from 95 to 106. 2 days went by before I could get them in a better bator and I have 17 of 27 still looking good 2 weeks later. High temps are way worse than low temps and thats prob what got mine so you should be fine.
