    My 'caunau eggs reached day 18 yesterday and when i took the turner out the temp dropped to 98 degrees plus er minus. It took allmost 6 hours to git the temp back up.It was at 100.0 when i went to bed at 2300 last nite, this morn it was at 101.0
    Is this too much fluctuation over too long a period o' time ?

    They should be fine. Mine lost power completely on day 19 or 20 and blew out my llight bulb on my last batch (buttons) The temps were down to room temps for at least 5-6 hours before I realized the bulb was blown and replaced it.

    I still got a decent hatch rate...
