    I just put hatching eggs in my incubator yesterday. I had everything set perfectly at 99.5 degrees. Then, without me knowing it, the little brother of my son's friend turned up the temp on the incubator. This would have been around 8:30 last night. I didn't notice it until this morning around 6 a.m. The temp was 106. Are my eggs ruined?

    so i am just curious to see what happened with your chicks... this happened to me, it got hot for maybe a couple hours, (within the first 6 hrs being in incubator) then i got it cooled and regulated at 99.5-100...
