    Sometime today my forced air LG went crazy and climbed to 106F. For unknown hours but maybe even 5 hours. Is there any hope?

    mine went to 105 and i hatched 22... depending where your themometer is located, and hopefully it wasnt accurate.. anything is possible.

    It takes the inside of the egg longer than the incubator to get to a higher temperature so they may still be okay.

    I've had a spike like that and still had a great hatch. Good luck!

    I'll let everyone know. It was my best hatch of four, I'm just a little bummed because I have so many well-developed chicks in those eggs.
