Hello, my chicken eggs are 6 days old. I normally have my temperature at around 99.5 degrees but today it dropped to 98.0 so I changed the bulb for one with higher power. I didn't know it will rise fast, so one hour and 20 minutes later I went and check the temperature and it was at 111. So it passed 1 hour and 20 minutes to go from 98 to 111, but I don't know exactly how much time they were above 103 (or the risk temperature). I quickly took them out and corrected the temperature. Do you think these eggs could have died?
