    Happened to me last week, twice. Still managed to end up with 9 healthy chicks hatched.

    Thank you I praying they are fine, the ducklings are bugging me the most honestly. Tge last six that hatch all died, my husband sprayed ant poison to close to their outside brooder. End up with no ducklings by three days later. And so far out of three chicken eggs i obly have one hatching,so yeah want thrilled about that incubator getting unplugged don't want to kill any chicks. We had a rough year so far I don't think I could handle anymore animals dieing. (Dogs had to be put down, goat kid had to be put down failure to thrive was suffering, the ducklings and one chick) that I mean to keep.
