    i have marans eggs to hatch today. i saw a pip in one egg (out of 40) this morning but no movement at all. the rest of the eggs are very very quiet.

    i had two times, where electricity went out and then yesterday, for some reason, the temp shot up to 102 in the bator.

    i've actually totally given up on this hatch, but still crossing my fingers since these marans eggs were a little pricey.

    any help of crossing of the fingers, toes, legs, eyes, anything, would help greatly.
