    First time hatching, and I'm so worried! It went unnoticed for 30 minutes. The temp was down to 85°F. How long can the eggs be that cool for before it affects the chick? Thank you!

    No worries for 30min.

    A hen. Will get off the nest longer.

    My brinsea has a cool down feature I don't use but could set for over an hour each day.

    That's what I was thinking but my first time jitters got the best of me. [​IMG]
