    I did infact lose all my eggs. 24-30 chicken eggs.I was afraid I would when I found the temp at 118 degrees. I have cleaned the incubator and would like to put some chicken and duck eggs in for the children. They are very disappointed as they were really looking forward to seeing them. They are second graders and most have never seen a live chicken. Is there anyone in Georgia that will sell me some eggs? We are in Savannah Ga. Maybe if you are close they will arrive faster and we can put them in by Friday.
    Thanks for any help

    awwww, I'm so sorry you lost your eggies. I'm sure your little second graders were very disappointed. sure you'll be able to get some more eggs, like miss_jayne said. Best of luck to you. Things should go much better with this next hatch. [​IMG]
