    Well I just went into lock down and I noticed tonight that with the weather change my incubators temp dropped. So am I out of luck or is it just going to set back the hatch day? Please tell me the later. Thanks

    Ideally your temperature should be 99-100, so you were pretty close. I don't think it would have an effect if it was only for a day, but you might have a slightly delayed hatch. So don't worry!

    My incubator's temp fluctuate from 95-105 and I still have more than 50% hatch rate.
