    Maybe. Depends on how long at that high temp.

    How long have the eggs been in the incubator what day are you on?

    You could continue to incubate the eggs and hope for the best and see what happens. It really is the only way to know.

    Do you know how the temp spiked so high? What can you do to prevent the spiking? THe more I tried to tweek the temp on my incubator the bigger the swings in temp. You can also add jars of water as a heat sink, which will reduce temperature swings.
