Incubator set at 90, any chance of a hatch?

    Hi there,
    my daughter set some of her banty eggs and I didn't double check the thermometer until Monday (when the eggs were due to hatch and there was no action). Unfortunately she was reading the wrong line and instead of being at 99, the temp was holding steady at 90. Is there any chance the eggs will hatch? If so, how late would you guess they will be? Thanks so much!

    Have you candled the eggs to look for movement?
    Short term drops in temp are not too bad but over a prolonged period could have caused more serious issues. My advice would be to candle and see what is happening.
