In the Brooder
- Sep 19, 2010
Well I bought some breeder serama eggs (32 when I weeded out broken ones) and I had a trip come up unexpectedly and the eggs came the day before I left. After I let them sit from shipping I put them in the incubator. Before I left I noticed that the temp. was a little low so I turned it up and asked my brother to come and make sure the temp. was good. I get a text that says he got the temp down to 108 from 110 and that it was now at 99.5. the humidity was pretty good though. So the question is-if my eggs were at such a high temp for a good portion of their first day in the bator should I consider them dead? I haven't taken them out or anything and the temp has been steady and so has humidity for two days after that but does anyone think they even have a chance of living? Have any of anyone elses hatched after a similar accident. This is my first chicken hatch and it would be terrible if already on day 1 they were all goners...
