    I set 4 bantum eggs last nite at 11pm. The temps went up to about 105 today for about an hour before I caught it. Will the high temps hurt, kill the developing embro at this early stage?[​IMG]

    It is always possible but only being an hour, things should be OK. You will know in 7 days. You can candle them to see if they are developing. :thumbsup

    Thanks, will be keeping my fingers crossed. [​IMG] I have 2 bantam hens and finally got enough eggs to set. Both have already gone brody. Both back in Jan and Feb but didn't sit on their eggs, they set on the other hens eggs. So this is my first try at some bantams.
