Alright BYC, I need your opinion. On the day my temp shot up to 104, I had 8 silkie eggs on day 5 and 5 silkie eggs on day 17. I'm using a still air LG. Due to thermal layering, I have one thermometer on top of the eggs and one sitting on bottom of the wire. When I checked the eggs at 11:30, the temp was 101 on top and 99 on bottom. When I came back at 8:00 the temp was 104 on top and 101 on bottom. I don't know how many hours they stayed like that. So, my question: Are they all dead now or is there any hope?

I had quite a few temp spikes, mine have not hatched yet but i know they are still alive because i can see them moving when candling.
Good luck with your hatch.

Don't give up. All of my chickens including my lone brooder chick survived 117 yesterday. They are resilient.
