    Hi, I am in need of some advise! My ducks are due this Thurs, and when I got up this morning the incubator was off. I turned it back on, the eggs felt room temp!! Is there any chance my babies survived> I have no idea how long the incubator was off!! [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    They will be fine. They are pretty tough.

    No, I haven't candeled them yet..I'm really scared to check them.. I really hope they are ok:( we checked them the other night and could see lots of movement in the eggs. (I have 3) I think I'll check them again tonight and just give them some time to settle.
    Thank you so much for responding so quickly! I will keep you posted! [​IMG]
