    im 7 days into incubating and the breaker popped sometime during the night last night.Incubater was down to 70 and eggs were cool to touch when i found the problem this morning. Do they still have a chance?

    I just candled a few of the eggs and they appear to be fine. still see the embryo moving and viening. Is there anything else i can look for to be sure they are ok?

    Not much more you can do.
    Candle them in another week & check for signs of life again.
    I think they should be okay...

    :( that happened with my first hatch this year and i didn't know any better, tossed them out. They probably would have hatched.
    Hope you get a good hatch rate. researching online after i tossed mine out I found that you are likely to have a lower hatch rate then if conditions were perfect, but that half should still hatch.
