    I ran my incubator for one day then adjusted it to get the right temp. Then i put the eggs in on Feb. 1. All was good until yesterday and today someone turned the temp way down in the room. The incubator couldnt keep up. So now my eggs were sitting at 90° for 2 days. Today I brought the incubator into a warmer room. Is that going to affect my hatching rate? Should i start over with new eggs?

    the eggs will be fine, it may extend your hatch a day or so it just depends on how long they remained at that temp and what the internal temp of the eggs were.
