    My incubator temp dropped at some point today while I was at work. We are on day 19 and it was at 81 degrees when I got home. I ran to the store and got a replacement. Any idea if my eggs are still viable??

    Day 19 they are producing body heat themself, so you have a good chance. Don't be surprised if there is a slight delay, because they were probably inactive when cold, but I'd imagine you'll still see hatchers. Good luck!
