    Well the weather here has gotten a little cooler and the temp in my bator fell to 97-98. So I turned it up a little before I went to bed last night. I woke up at midnight and got up to check it. The temp had gotton up to 105. I freeked, I just knew I had killed all my babies.

    It couldn't had been up that high for very long, I went to bed after 10. After that I was up most of the night keeping an eye on it.

    Got up this morning and candled them all 8 still have movement in them. I sure hope they are o.k.

    I had a couple crazy spikes/drops as well, but everything turned out fine.
    Good luck! Keep us updated!

    Well I checked them again when I got home from work and they look fine. Lots of movement. I'm on day 14 so cross your fingers for me.[​IMG]
