    What is the earliest you can perform a float test? Just put my eggs in bator last night. It was steady at 100 at 2am when I woke up at 5:30am it was 104. I thought I had the temp all set b4 putting the eggs in. I'm a bit sad. It is now steady at 100 again but I hope I didn't ruin my batch.

    You don't do a float test until they are over due. They will be fine if you got down right away.
