    I know how you feel. On my first hatch we lost power after we went into lockdown. I don't know how long it was out but when I woke up the house was dark and my first thought was "Oh no, the eggs!" The temp didn't go as far down as yours but I was so worried. Out of 8 in lockdown, we got six chicks. Good luck on the rest of your hatch! [​IMG]
