    I would run them until the 7th day and check for growth. If not, then I'd cull and start over.

    I had mine spike to 102.9 and I still have little ones moving about ready to pip.....they are just taking forever.

    Yeah, I'd agree. If you read some of the stories on this forum, people have hatched after crazy situations.

    If she hasn't done so already, tell her to get a surge protector to control spikes in power to her banter.
