    Hi all my temp in my incubator has gone up to 105 twice! The first time was on the 3rd day and then again on the 14th day! GRRRRRR! It is my first time and my Kinders and I are really looking forward to it! I candled them and they were moving yesterday. Today when I came in not only was the temp up for the second time but 2 of the eggs have some yellow crust on the out side?!?!
    Please help me and tell me that there is hope????!!!

    G’Day from down under kburckley [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry that I have no incubator experience, just hatches under a broody hen. However, I hope the folks on the Forum redsoxs gave you a link to are able to assist and also that the hatch goes well.

    It sounds like the eggs are leaking, and I would venture to guess the chicks have fried inside.
