    I took my call eggs out to cool and misted them, that was about 3:30, I just now put them back in because I went upstairs and totaly forgot about them and took a nap. Im thinking they'll be okay since it would only be like my bator's temp going down to 70 for acouple hour. Do you think they'll be okay? has anyone else done this?

    I haven't done this BUT, I read that some one saw a female mallard get hit on the road, it took him two days to find her nest and the eggs were ice old when he did. He popped them in the bator anyways and they all hatched, so I can't imagine a couple of hrs at 70% would be detrimental. But after reading ur post I have to ask. Should I be cooling my muscovy eggs? If so what day do you start that?

    Mmm, I dont know much about muscovies but for calls your suppose to cool and mist for 10 minutes once a day.

    I did that also. [​IMG] I left them cooling, and forgot them for an hour or so. Luckly, they were fine.

    What day were they on?

    They are on day 13, and I just candled them. They all look fine except for the ones I already knew that would most likely have not made it because of floating ar sacs.
