    Depends on low long the spike was but don't give up hope! Okay? Let's just see how the hatch comes out. Good hatching vibes for you.

    take a little time to candle really quick. then get everything that has signs of life in the bator and keep the humidity up and no touching after that.

    maybe there will be some good news.

    and if you have to cry, do it. sometimes you just need to get it out to go on. [​IMG]

    You should hopefully be fine! Especially if you caught it quickly. Ive had eggs survive as high as 111 degrees, and as low as 96 degrees. Of course this was fixed asap when I found the problem, but the lived.

    Never give up hope, especially now that you are so close!! [​IMG]

    Quote:okay, leave them all in there in that case. crank the humidity as Marans need good humidity to hatch.

    hang tight and let's see what happens! maybe there will be a good report in a few days! [​IMG]
