    today is only day 16, but i've had a couple days spike to 104!!!! [​IMG] So, I'm nervous it cooked the poor lil things. I don't know why I'm having the issues with the temp. the house is heated, the same temp day and night...so there should be no issues. [​IMG]

    I'll see how they are doing...hoping I still have 33 lil babies bouncing around in those eggs.. [​IMG]

    are you using a still air or circulated air model?

    can you move the incubator to another location in the house, away from windows?

    if the temperature spikes haven't lasted too long, you're probably fine, just keep going.

    I'm going to move the bator...and it's a still air. some days its a steady 100 but others for some reason it'll spike 104 in the afternoons...I'll check em tonight, and make sure they are ok....and then move the bator in the process. [​IMG]
