    Well last night i probably lost close to 12 eggs during lockdown because of a power outage caused by a Storm [​IMG]
    But, this morning when i told me mom, she said "well, how long until you have to give the incubator back?" (the incubator was on loan from a friend) and i told her until my friend wanetd it back, which she really didnt for a while. so my mom said "well why dont we get more eggs, and try again?"
    I finally got to her with the chicken bug. [​IMG]
    ETA i already had 7 chicks hatch, but this was out of 19 eggs, so [​IMG]

    How long was the power out? They still may hatch, just give them more time if the temp dropped for a few hours.

    Quote:im not sure. when i woke up, the temp was at 81* and it was about 1:00.. but it is day 24 so i wasnt expecting too much anyway. (i had been hearing peeps and movement yesterday before the power outage, but none afterward)
