    Stick them in your bra or underwear! (not sure if you're female or not, sorry!) Keep them warm!

    Keep them in a warm place (maybe on a towel resting on a heating pad, turn several times daily and get another incubator asap or find someone with broody hens. They will survive for a while - maybe as long as 24 hours out of the incubator, but after that, you will probably lose them. I think there are some articles online about how to make your own incubator, but probably easier and faster to replace. They are not far enough along to use temporary measures for long.
