    I checked the temp on my incubator this morning and it was around 112F!!! I heard the danger zone is 104F, it could have been like this for 5 hours! Do you think their all dead? They're chicken eggs on their third day of incubation. I read somewhere that if its above danger zone for 2 hours they're all dead,is this true??

    I would try to candle the eggs at 7-10 days to note any veins or movement. Good luck.
