    I was looking in on the eggs today (day 3 in oven/incubator) and couldn't resist touching them. They felt too warm, so I picked up the therm. for a good look. The mark that I thought was 100 deg. is actually 110; for 2 days my babies have been at about 109 deg.!

    I opened the door to cool it down a little, then turned off the light and shut the door again. Is there ANY hope for them? I think we're at day 18.

    I feel sick. And yes, I have resolved never to check the therm. again without my reading glasses! [​IMG]

    WOW!

    Probly not much hope but if your at day 18 I would just wait and see what happens! I would give it till 23-24 then toss them.
