    I was worried cause my temp dropped when i checked this morning and i dont know how long it was like that, so i opened up my still air and felt the eggs and a couple was cold, id say it felt like about 98f so i gently picked egg up the same way it was laying and put the light to the airsac end and it looked like a head was in the airsac so i put it down and checked another one gently and its moving so their okay i guess but the one that looked like it was going in airsac is it going to hatch? is it normal? it was moving but uggg i googled and couldnt find anything about it:idunno

    I think you should be fine especially if the temp drop wasn't too drastic and for too long.

    I hatched some last month, had a temp drop to 88 overnight. All my eggs ended up hatching.

    When are the eggs due to hatch?

    Good luck and keep us posted [​IMG]
