    Well I went over to feed the chickens and I went went into the shed and then noticed the power had cut off!

    I dont know how long, I have brought them to the house and plugged them in again.. when I opened it, it was still luke warm,

    Is there still hope?

    I had some eggs at around 14 days...
    and some around 5 days...

    if the eggs are luke warm, i say you dont have any problem, just like the mama hen getting off for a few to eat, drink, poo and stretch her wings.[​IMG] Or like a person candling a bunch of eggs. i say no worries. [​IMG]
