    Is that a death sentence? I immediately took the top off and fanned like crazy to get the temp back down. Once cooled down I candled some of the eggs and saw movement inside.

    Sounds like you might have caught it time. Good Luck with your hatch. What are you hatching?[​IMG]

    Even though the temperature in the incubator was 108 it takes several hours for the egg temp to come up. You should be fine. Good luck and have fun!!!

    Quote:Thanks to both of ya'll for the answers... I was worried they would die later or something. July 5th is the hatch date... less than a week! Hate to kill them all by some dumb mistake or malfunction.
