    Hi all,

    Last week I put two eggs under my broody silkie, until now I haven't had any problems, but the fertile eggs were then accidentally put into the fridge for around 8 hours. I just wanted to know if the chicks were dead of still alive. I'm pretty sure they're dead but I don't want to throw out alive chicks. For now I have put them back under the silkie until I get a conclusion. Thanks for your help!

    The best way is to go to www.brinsea.co.uk, then to FAQs, then "what to do when the power goes off" - thats the doc that i was trying to link.

    Good luck
