    I have a 1602-N[FONT=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif] still air hovabator that is going wacky.The hovabator is over heating and i have eggs in it.I had it set at 101.0F for 3 days and everything was going well.Once i put the eggs in the incubator yesterday it started to rise a little bit but not much so i didn't think much of it.Once i went upstairs this morning to turn the eggs it was at 121.3F!They would have only been like that for 30 min.I was in shock so i took the eggs out 2 by 2 as fast as can be,They were HOT!I now put the eggs back inside so they wouldn't get could so now i am worried about what to do!Could they still survive?[/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif]Update to my surprise every single egg in the incubator is developing!So if anyone thinks that they loose any eggs just wait it out and don't give up![/FONT]
