    So is your incubator not working at all or did the temp just drop. I would never give up till day 25, you would be amazed at how resilient eggs and chicks are.

    Temp under a brooder lamp gets real hot - real fast if light is too close to chicks or eggs. If you do pull to put them under it don't walk away until you are 100% sure temp is OK and not too hot. Good Luck hope they hatch for you.
