    Ok all you pros! When should I see a pip? I saw a couple of the eggs rocking last night,but not today...does that mean they died?? [​IMG]
    The temp went down to like 97-98 last night (don't know for how many hours)I have it holding at 100 right now. I'm going NUTS waiting!! [​IMG]

    Patience! Low temps may have slowed down activity, but I doubt it was low enough for long enough to hurt them.

    Earlier this spring one of my old foam incubators was running at low temp (97 or there abouts) for the whole incubation. My gage was off. I did get hatchlings, but they were later than usual. Some not until day 24.

    Candle before you decide to give up on anything. See if air sacks were pipped. Look for movement.

    Best wishes.
