Are my eggs still good??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

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 ??

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.

I agree your eggs will be fine. Look at it like the hen getting off the nest to feed and drink in nature. My incubator has a cool down option that replicates the hen leaving the nest each day. I set it to go off for an hour each day. The heating element turns off all together so it cools right down.

Good luck with your hatch big_smile.png
