    So after a power outage last night, I'm down to 2 eggs that lived. They're on day 13. Hopefully they survive. Power was down for 6 hours and it was -13° out. We'll see.....

    Oh no Caesar! I hope the two left both hatch so you don't have a singleton! That was deffinately not a good time for the power to go out!
    Only time the power went out while I was incubating was two years ago in the middle of summer, so it wasn't a big deal.

    Welcome purpletie! That's a nice assortment of eggs! I love spitz but have never had any...am interested to see the chicks! :-D

    That's heartbreaking! I had a power outage last year...I lost them all. Wish I had known the power was out...I would have carried them on my body until it went back on. ($225/6 eggs)

    I am sorry about the power outage, I had 2, once I was hatching out 2 eggs power went out 2 days before hatch, (5 hrs)I took the eggs to bed with me, put them back when power came on, and both chicks hatched on time 2 days later..

    The second power outages there were 2 a couple of days apart from each other, one 5hrs one 6hrs. I used hand warming packets to keep them warm 16/17 hatched with those...

    Probably a little late to this thread. I set 14 bourbon red eggs on the 4th. I've candled a few and most have small veins forming.

    Will do a full candling on Thursday. Should see better formations in them by then.

    Good luck to all others that are incubatinh.
