    Hi All,
    I was 1 week into an incubation (Hova-bator) and my dogs accidentally knocked the plug out of the wall. Temp got down to 69 degrees but I knew it was for under 24 hrs. I read a lot and decided to keep'er going. I'm in the midst of the hatch right now and I've got 13 chicks all healthy and happy. I know that others have experience this and I wanted to give hope to those who've gone through what I just did. FYI, while I thought I'd "lost" a day, they all hatched on schedule!

    Thanks- and I should say that I was only incubating 16 egg. Of the 3 remaining one not fertilized (but I keep losing track of it so I leave it in the 'bator) I have minimal hope for the final 2 but I'll give them through the weekend.
