    Just cross your fingers. I think they should be all right.

    They'll probably be fine. No incubation is perfect--we make mistakes, machines fail, stuff happens. Even broodies make mistakes. They are turning now, and that is what matters. Candle in a few days and if all looks good, you're probably out of the woods. [​IMG]

    Keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best. Candle them on Day 10 and see how they are doing.

    Some should hatch. You may have a bit lower hatch rate and there is also an increased risk of deformed chicks. You should still get a good number of healthy chicks though.
