I'm not sure if they will be alright, maybe since its the first few days they will be ok but they might not.

 

PS. Is your incubator a little giant?

They should be ok since it was that early in the process. There are actually studies of starting incubation and halting it with in the first few days (days 2 or 3 I think) so I would definitely give them the benefit of the doubt and keep them going. I would suspect that the development will be a day behind, but I don't think it'll compromise your hatch. 

 

Please keep us updated on the results and how the incubation progresses!! And :welcome
