    It's unlikely 104 degrees did them in.

    I did cook one (that was pipping!) at 110.

    Don't think so. Someone else made a thread not long ago asking the same thing and I told how my eggs were 107 for about 4 hours on the second night (?) and they have now been incubating a week and are moving around :).

    I read in a book about over 107 can kill them if its a still air and 103-104 if its a forced air.
