    Hi,

    I had that happen with my buff orp eggs last yr. They should be fine. Mine was off for more then 8 hours to. I had a good hatch. I hope everything is ok and let us know on day 19 if there are pips, peeps, or shakes [​IMG]

    I'm glad to hear the reassurance-mine was at 97.1 this morning and I was worried to. It's good to know that even if the bator really dropped we can still get some chicks. [​IMG]
