    Okay so my one button quail egg was rocking this morning.....and i kept checking the temp and it kept hovering around 100...and i was urked because i cuoldnt get the humidity up to even 40....then when I went to erase the kept computer "high and low" temps on my temp and humidity gauge and it didnt work i realized my stupid temp and humidity werent reading because the battery was dying!!!!!!! Now im devistated......it's been hours of me assuming the temp was at 100....now i have NO IDEA what the temps were at. THe eggs are warm, warmer than my hands atleast....I hope to gosh they diddnt die from that......*so paranoid right now*....I have varoius stages in my incubator. Ones due to hatch on sunday or monday, then another batch due to hatch on 17th and or 18th, thenn the last batch to hatch on the 21st and 22nd.....


    *wants to hide in a hole now....*

    I had my power go out one night during the incubation and still had a great hatch! Your eggs should be fine as long as they didnt get tooo hot or tooo cold....but 96 isnt bad!
    Good Luck [​IMG]

Yeah all day today I think that's the temp they were at being as I stilll had to turn the other eggs (i do it about 3-4 times a day) and each time it felt *acceptable temps* to me and the eggs were toasty thats why I ddint think anything of it other than wow...my guage is staying too steady!?!?! LOL!
