I actually tried not getting my hopes up this time...but after seeing the little embryo in there and then somthing stupid and completley preventable like this happens, its hard not to be upset. I left them in there and plugged it back in, but I know chances are theyre both dead...

Probably didn't kill them, but the best case scenario is that they will hatch almost a day late...

I don't think it would hurt them either...birds leave the nests to eat all the time while setting eggs.

My advice: leave them plugged in and loose the BF.

I had 15 maran eggs in the incubator and we lost power for longer then that, have hope. One of those babies made it! Just keep trying, you may get some to hatch! Best of luck!

Quote:haha I know, I didnt want to say anything but what a moron...he forgot about the eggs and unplugged the cord to plug in his laptop. He said he thought it was the lamp cord. He offered to buy new ones this morning, but that's really not the point at all...
