    I accidently shut the bator off for 2 hours yesterday on day 14. The temp was down to 83F when i noticed. The eggs were "luke warm" to touch. What have I done?[​IMG]

    Probably nothing. Keep going. You might be surprised that several will hatch. The internal egg temps probably didn't get cool.

    Oh dear. I dont think you "killed" them, maybe just delayed the hatch a day. Maybe not even that! Im sure they will be ok. Press on and Happy hatching![​IMG]

    I had a power outage for 6 hours and still got a great hatch. I think you'll be fine.
