    please please please let them be ok!

    Day 15, temp spiked to 106.5 when my turner burned up in my LG still air. I have 12 eggs in there that I just candled and saw movement on day 13.

    Anyone have any experience with that much of a temp spike?

    I am so glad I replaced my LG, but before that I had a similar spike in temp fot several hours. My thermometer read 107 I was freeking out thought I had lost them all. Five days later I had a decent hatch so I think you should be ok.

    LG's are notorious for not having consistent temps and some of the eggs may not have gone as high in temp as you think.

    Dont stop, keep them set you will probably still have some hatch [​IMG]

    "Disclamer" I have not hatched any eggs yet just know what I have been reading here. I thought you needed a response in youre moment of crises, so untill one of these awsome people that know much more then I answers all I can say is that there have been a few people who post with this problem and it looks like as long as it didnt stay to high for to long some people have had hatches after a temp spike so dont give up .
    Good luck [​IMG]

    if the temp wasn't up to long, you should be ok. it takes a while to heat the inside of the eggs up so ......

    i would leave them in and wait and see what happens.. [​IMG]
