    hubby yesterday didn't realize that the temp is supposed to be at 99 and turned it down, when I called my son and asked him to turn the eggs he told me what the thermometer read. It was probably turned down about 9am and ryan caught it about 2pm?? will that hurt my hatch?

    I recently lost power to my town on Saturday night. We were without power to our incubator for a little over 7 hours. The temp got down to 71 degrees. The eggs were about 17 days old and they are pipping and hatching as we speak [​IMG]

    Good luck!

    Oh, geeze! I knew there was a word filter and still didnt change my word. When you type e g g here it automatically turns it into r o o s t e r. Im assuming because its A pril first?
