The 103 worries me.
I hope it wasn't that, that caused the death😬 Speaking of attempting to hatch again, though, I was wondering if there were any good incubators you guys recommend? As well as possible places that would sell silkie eggs around North Carolina so I can feel better about the first egg?

If it was 103 for a long time, then yes. If it was 103 just for long enough for an alarm to go off, the embryo would never have even gotten that hot, as internal egg temperature always lags being air temperature.

Now, if the thermometer isn't accurate and that 103 was a 105+, that's a different situation.
