    [​IMG] I went home and found my 'bator at 107 -I think my eggs are cooked. Things were great at 8:30 this AM when I moved yesterday's Austrolopes into the brooder. I left 4 silkies that hatched over night, 5 or 6 friz.cochin eggs and 1
    living, chirping, pipped silkie. My DH was supposed to check them before he left this AM -around 10, I think. I can't imagine how this happened. I am using the double Hovabator system. So far I have 100% hatched that went in but the 6 Frizzled cochin eggs that went in 1 day after the others and the 1 straggler silkie. The only eggs I lost were not fertile and one quitter. I moved the silky chicks into the brooder which has a warm area of 99 and they are looking good so far but the egg that had pipped was not breathing or moving around anymore and the eggs are completly still - no movement seen with candling at all. I am so upset! Things were so perfect until now and this is my first hatch.[​IMG]
