    Due to a faulty thermometer, my incubator was running at 104 degrees for about the first five days. Any suggestions?

    Expect the chicks to hatch a day or 2 early. You don't have to lockdown until you see pips though, or day 18 as you would normally. Good luck with your hatch!

    Thank you. I'm glad I don't have to start over.
