    I'm on day 19 of incubating a couple eggs. Last night I took the turner out and laid the eggs on the side.I guess I didn't notice the top of the incubator did not close all the way down and this morning when I checked on it the temp had dropped to 96.5 . It's was over night and we are 2 days from hatch. Are the chicks going to be ok with that temp drop this late in the process?

    I would think they should be fine, try not to worry :hugs I know that's easier said than done but you can't change the fact the temp was low for a while. At this later stage in incubation the chicks should be generating some of their own heat too inside the egg.

    Good luck with your hatch :fl
