    My electric went and eggs were cold couldn't see no movement inside egg does this mean chick dead or if it gets cold will chick movement lessen????

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] We're glad to have you.

    How long were the eggs cold? If they were completely cold for a while, unfortuantely they are probably dead.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    4 hours shouldn't hurt anything. This cool down will only delay the hatch somewhat. Just get everything back up and running and back to business as usual. You should still get a good hatch.

    Happy New Year!!

    Their is movement just yet from inside could this be from where it went cold . Wierd comparision but when I worked for a mealworm breeding firm when you cooled them it slowed their movement

    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    I also don't think 4 hours will hurt.

    Hello, [​IMG] and have a happy 2015! I personally have never used an incubator before (hatching eggs will always be a job for a broody hen, to me) but I wish you luck!
