    If hatch day is tomorrow top should be put back on immediately to insure some humidity if the temps have lowered. As far as the temp increase only time will tell, sometimes they will truly surprise you. How long did it stay at that temp will likely be the biggest factor.

    i dont know how long but i moved them to it around 12 and it was at normal temp and noticed it was way up around 7 pm. i feel so stupid for doing that though i freaked out so much and reacted so quick i completly forgot about the humidity and now the temp is screwed up and is around 91 i keep checking and it is slowly rising i don't see how they will make it after going from 110 then quickly to 90[​IMG]

    Well they should be fully developed, so probably the best time for it to happen if it had to happen.[​IMG]
