    I did lockdown this evening around 10 pm meaning to check the temp in 20 mins, forgot and at 1:50 am almost 4 hrs later
    just checked the bator for 4 hrs it's been at 94 to 95. Whats the chances they're still ok?

    Very good! Just make sure its at the temp it should be now! My bator was wonky for a day at lockdown ladt week too BUT 6/6 hatched! Good luck dont give up hope! Remember the mommas get off their eggs to eat and drink everday so the temp goes down with them too!

    They will for sure be delayed by the lower temps..but hopefully not that delayed...that could problems all on its own...
