    Of course they will more than likely be OK! [​IMG] Nothing to worry about! I've heard of temps going up to 110*F for longer than an hour and some still hatched. [​IMG] It's not bad at all if it only goes up to 101*F
    Don't worry; the temp. change will more than likely NOT affect them. [​IMG]

    Yes, I dont THINK you have to worry if it doesnt get above 102...of course depending on what kind of incubator and what kind of eggs?

    Should be fine. I have had my LG still air go up to 106 for at least 2 hrs before and they have been fine.

    I've always heard the still air LGs should be at 101.5 average anyway [​IMG]

    We have a still air incubator and keep the temp at 101. Should be fine.

    If your temp only spikes to 101 at one point, I think your doing pretty darn good!! [​IMG]
