    I have 15 americuana eggs in the incubator. They were on day 9 when the switch on the power strip got switched off. I noticed it almost a day later. It was 80 degrees here today, but cooler last night.

    I have read posts of eggs that were later on in their incubation being lost. Is there hope since it was earlier in gestation? When should I start to see movement if there are still alive?

    I candled them Monday night (day 8) and it looked like 10 of 15 were developing.

    Thanks for your help, Russ
