    I am incubating some chicken eggs at the moment and when I got home from work today, the temperature was 104 degrees in the incubator. I believe it was for 4 or 5 hours at most. Are the eggs going to be OK or are they doomed?

    They should be fine, just candle the next time that's due and see if there is any development in the egg.
