    When I got up this morning my incubator temperature was 102.6. I have a have a hova bator Genesis. It’s at years old though. It has a cover over the inside temperature control setting that had come off. I have since put it back on and the temperature Has gone back to where it needs to be. I’m using a temperature and humidity gauge from incubator warehouse. That’s where my measurement came from. Tomorrow is our lockdown day. Do you think my chicks are going to be okay?

    This was my test run. I started out with four eggs, but one wasn’t fertilized and one stopped developing. The other two have been coming along fine. I do hope they’re going to be OK.

    A year ago my mega bator had 145F and 940 eggs had been cooked :)

    I think 102 is not problem )

    I wouldn't be worried about 102.6. And consider any who don't make to have not been going to make it anyways.

    embryos that had a temp spike at the end of incubation... tend to have higher heat tolerance as adult chickens.

    I think you will be fine. Happy hatching! :jumpy:jumpy
