    Hi Y'all!!! It's me again![​IMG] Well, if any of my eggs hatch it's going to be a true miracle at this point![​IMG] When we first put the eggs in the incubator went haywire and remained at between 102 and 112 degrees and 99% humidity for the first three hours before we got it corrected! Now this morning there was a power outage b/c of a storm we had and they were at 70 degrees for three hours before the power came back on again!(AAAAHHHH!)[​IMG] I'll be able to candle them in a few more days and see what I have![​IMG] I'm soooo bummed!

    Don't panic yet. Short dropdowns like that in temps from power outages don't seem to cause much harm if they don't last more than a few hours. That said there have been people here who have had outages for much longer and had chicks make it.

    I had a power outage for 13 hours - temps went down to 70. Everyone posted my eggs should be o.k. I go into lockdown tonight - so lets hope!
    Dont give up hope on your eggs yet! [​IMG]
