    I don't know whether to pitch these eggs or not. The power went out yesterday evening or 4 different occasions.(all in a 7 hour period) The temp on one of those times dropped to 87. The temperature has been stable since this morning. Are these eggs done for?

    I had a power outage also. I just left my eggs in and the next night I candled them. They all were still moving so I think they are ok. I suggest candleing them before you thro them out. Good luck and tells us what you see.
