I recently had a thermostat go out on a bator and it had been several days since I had even looked at the temp... the bator was down to 80 degrees when I discovered it and I had no idea how long it had been that way. I got it up and running in an hour or so. The duck eggs only had a week or so left on them so I left the eggs in to see what happened. I had 7 out of 8 duck eggs hatch... 3 days late.

I am so excited to hear this, We lost power there other night we had HIGH winds and Rain and i checked on them at midnight and they were on and when i got up at 5:30 am there weren't and I was sick ... but my temp in the incubator still read 86 and it only took 5 mins to warm back up so I am praying my babies are still ok.
