When i went to check the eggs on my homemade incubator they were reeeeeaaalyy hot (over 40C), is there any hope for them? How many degrees is too much for the egg to survive? Should I throw them away or keep them in the incubator? Thanks

I'd keep them in until you are sure one way or the other. You should be able to candle in a few days and see if you can still see veins or not. If it was only for a brief time and the internal temperature of the eggs didn't reach the same temperature as the air in the incubator they should still be ok.

It wasn't even fertile, thanks for the help though :)
