    i just set 24 eggs in a little giant forced air incubator. i was adjusting the temp and it was too low so i turned it up a tiny bit and 1-2 hours later it was at 107!!!! so obviously i turned it down but will they be ok?

    One thing to keep in mind is that air temperatures can fluctuate more and faster than water, but that is a concerning temperature. If they were at that temperature for a short time, they may be okay. My $0.02: leave them for now and candle them in a week to see if they are growing. Good luck!

    X2...I've had temp spikes like that before & caught it quickly. That was actually 1 of my best hatches, so you never know.

    I bet they will be ok. Like others said take a look later and see how they are doing.
