This is also my first post on BYC, so if I make any mistakes please bear with me. (this one is actually a double of the other forum post ^^; wish i knew how to delete one, but people have noticed both. lol Solved!!)
It's day 19 with my chicken eggs and I had realized that last night it was colder than usual, but I thought nothing of it because the incubator was always fine until this point. I went down to check on my babies this morning and the temp read 96. I panicked. I'm close to tears, eating my feelings, choking on air, it sucks. I've come this far and filled every day with love only to make one little mistake and possibly kill them all. I turned the thermostat in my house up to 72 as it had gone down to 61 last night which was ridiculous in itself. I also, in my panic, turned up the temp in the incubator up a HAIR. Only because the temp has dropped in there since I added lots of water yesterday to prepare them for their hatch. (Yesterday I also added a thin kitchen mat so that they wont slip, but I don't think that would alter the temperature.) Everything seemed completely fine.
Because they're in lockdown, I can't candle them to check on them.
I'll try to peep at them to see if they reply, but... Do you all think that they'll be okay...?
