    I set eggs in the incubator 2 days ago. Today while working on some electrical issues in my home, the circuit breaker to the same plug my incubator is plugged into was turned off for over an hour (hubby had no idea the breaker would affect a separate room on a different story). The incubator got down to 75 degrees for who knows how long--at least a half an hour. So is there any chance they are still viable. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    I am hopeful! I was thinking the same thing--that the hen gets up and walks around leaving the eggs. My duck use to leave her eggs everyday for almost an hour and all 15 eggs hatched over 5 days!! So maybe I still have a chance?? I am sick to my stomach over this ):
