    Everything was going great when I went to bed last night. This am heard DH screaming for me and the light bulb in the homemade bator went out sometime last night. The two beautiful eggs were cold as a rock and the temperature was 70. I am so hurt, but will forge ahead and set more eggs this weekend. Lesson learned. [​IMG]

    You didn't remove the eggs did you? I hope not. That happens sometimes, and they develop just fine but might hatch a little late.

    I'm with Tammi,
    Just read something on this recently concerning power outages.
    You might be fine just letting them slowly heat up.
    Good luck,
    Let us know

    Mine dropped to 79 right before lock-down and I just hatched 5, 6 pipped. So I guess its all possible!

    DH is fixing the problem as we speak. Say a little prayer for my babies. I had actually given up hope cause they were so cold and still.
