    In the title it says 25 degrees, but after reading I see it is only 75. Most should be okay, just try to get the temp up asap.

    I've read here and elsewhere that an eggs internal temperature takes 1/2 hour to go down.

    I just hatched out some chicks on Sunday past and the incubator I used had a mind of its own. The temperature in that thing went from 96F to 105F ALL the time. I was just about out of my mind and was even getting up in the night a couple times to check. All mine hatched out fine. Don't worry just get that temp back up. You'll probably be ok. I'm wishing you luck.[​IMG]

    You,ve no choice now but to see it through, it will be fine if it only went down to 75. I'm sure you have the heat on now. I have had that happen on the batch in the bator now,the power went out for hours, when we candled last they were good.
