Help! Fourth day of incubating eggs and my kids unplugged it to charge something!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
First time hatching, and I'm so worried! It went unnoticed for 30 minutes. The temp was down to 85°F. How long can the eggs be that cool for before it affects the chick? Thank you!

No worries for 30min.

A hen. Will get off the nest longer.

My brinsea has a cool down feature I don't use but could set for over an hour each day.

That's what I was thinking but my first time jitters got the best of me. ☺
