    The temp was down last night so I turned it up before bed and forgot. When I went down this morning, the temp was 103! Will they be ok? I'm so mad at myself! They have been there 5 days.

    Too hot is generally worse than too cold; however, 103 F is 'not all that hot'. Candle at 7 days, and if there is still development all will be OK. Good luck.

    I had a temperature spike to 105 one night. I discovered it the next morning. The eggs still hatched so there's hope for yours. Good luck!

    Time for an update - are the eggs developing?
