    So basically my (home made) incubator was getting low and the heat was all I could set it so I put a blanket over it. The only thing is I TOTALLY forgot the blanket was on it. So the incubator got to 108 last night at 1:00 (a.m.) for about an hour or two. Its 6:00 p.m. and none of them stink (yes they are fertile and at 7 days today) did the embryo die? And how long until it dies when its at 108 degrees? And will they hatch? Thanks!
