    OK, so we had a nasty storm that knocked out our electricity for 18 hours. I have 6 lavender Orpington eggs in my bator on day 6. I covered the bator with a heavy sweatshirt and figured all was lost. It is 2 days later and I candled tonight. All 6 are swimming around and show great veining! Is this abnormal or can these eggs actually make it? Anyone have a similar experience? What was the outcome?

    I honestly do not know personally but i've read that its the overall average temperature that matters when incubating. I hope someone who knows what they are talking about will come along and confirm that for you! good luck maybe your babies will be fine.
