    Please no crying. Maybe they can be saved. Do you have a still air incubator? or the fan kind?
    I am so very sorry (hug)

    I'm sorry [​IMG]. Maybe all is not lost----although I'm not exactly an expert.

    So very sorry, hun if anything did happen. [​IMG] but, since it is a still-air bator, and the temperature wasn't below 95, you might still have a chance. Eggs in an incubator like that can go 7 whole days and the chicks still be fine as long as it never went below 95. When you last checked them, what was the temp? (Before the temp went off)

    I recommend bringing the temp up to 101.0 and dropping the humidity to 55 or 65.

    I have an article on hatching and can e-mail it to you if you'd like. I will not keep your address in my book unless you say otherwise.
