    I am so upset---I built a bator with miss prissy's instructions, loaded it up and it has been doing so good!!!! I had 100% fertility when I candled and then only 1 quitter the 2nd time I candled. The power went out around 1:30pm--we called the power company and they said "No problem" At 9:30pm someone finally got here and it took them like 5 minutes to fix it!!!!!! The eggs were sitting at 70 degrees for like 7 hours!!!!!! I'm so sad [​IMG]

    DO NOT pitch them. I would candle again in a couple days. There is still a good chance that they are still good.

    I'm not going to throw them out--but I'm just so bummed. I really hope that some of them can make it.
