I have 9 eggs in a homemade incubator. They are on day 14 and all are developing nicely. I woke up this morning, go to turn the eggs as usual, and they were cool to the touch! The light bulb had failed overnight. I turned the eggs before bed last night and they were fine. So they could have cooled for up to 8 hrs or so. I've warmed them back up, but am I wasting my time? Should I discard them and start a new batch? This is my first time incubating and thought things were going too smooth. Any wisdom would be appreciated.

I would give thelm a few day and candel thelm and look for movement you are only 7 days out from hatch plus one day for the temp drop. You can still wait it out also i would give thelm a chance.

Thanks. The eggs have warmed up, and I'll wait it out. I guess I'll start selecting some more eggs anyway. I wasnt very picky before and used a couple eggs I now know I shouldnt have. One was porous and one was small. Ahhh such a learning experience.
