    You need to figure out what is allowing it to spike. I once lost power & the eggs were down to 50 for several hours but still had a hatch.

    Good luck!!

    Lots of stories of temp. spikes, power failures and broody hens who have left the eggs for many hours and still chicks have hatched, so don't assume all is lost (But DO get your incubator fixed!)

    Good Luck

    keep hand warmers handy and if you have a power outage they will keep the incubator warm til power comes back on. They usually last for 12 hours or more.
