Power was out for 26 hours... Are my eggs dead?
maybe maybe not, why don't you candle them and see?
I always keep handwarmers available for situations like this.
I have a thread going at the moment where our power was off to the incubator for about the same time as yours (lead inadvertently pulled out). Overnight temp well below 50 degrees F. All embryos are still going at the moment.
Did you try to keep the warm air in the incubator while the power was off? I lost power and my incubator temp went to 78 degrees when I discovered it. I always have a battery pack with an inverter that I can plug the incubator into when we have power losses. I still had a good hatch. You can get a battery pack and inverter at Walmart in the auto department. I would leave them in the incubator and after a few more days then I would candle to see if I see any movement. That is what I did. I saw movement so I let the temp come back up on the battery pack and inverter until the power came back on. I was 2 weeks into incubation when we lost our power. Good luck!!!
