    So I recently bought some hatching eggs from a local breeder. I had a set of eggs already in my bator so I had to wait a few days before I could put this batch in. Normally the room I have for the eggs to sit in until I am ready for them is a fairly cool room. The last couple of days the room got up over 70 degrees. My concern is if that amount of heat killed all my eggs or if they are still okay to put in the incubator. I am going to attempt to candle them before I put them in. These are Maran eggs and may be very hard to see anything.

    I doubt that the warm temperature damaged the eggs at all Embryos can start to develop in temperatures above 72 degrees
