    I have chicken eggs in the incubator that was put on Monday night. (its Wednesday am here now) last night sweet hubby decided to shut down computer and turned off the incubator at the same time. So my poor eggs have been off for approx 9 hours or so. Should I throw them and start again or is there any hope they may be ok. Never had this happen before so not sure what to do. Thanks.

    Just plug it back in an adjust your expected hatch date back by about 9 hours. They may not all make it but most should be fine. Some people have even had there eggs incubated for 2 days before packing them to ship them.
