    It's hard to know exactly, but it is very possible that the eggs are fine.

    They have a mass that retains heat for a while. I would resume incubation if you have any time on the eggs at all.

    We have had broody birds leave the nest for what seems like hours and hours each day, but somehow they hatch.

    My homemade incubator has two bulbs and has a bit of protection. At least one should remain on, until I can replace the other.
