    I just got woke up and my 9 year nephew decide to readjust my new LG and putting all of the eggs at stake of being dead in shell... would they live though a decrease & then increase of temp for about 2-3 hours?

    PS I candled a few pigeon eggs...they're all clear but each has a blob of darkness on one side...Is that meaning their dead? I Must know!

    how low or how high?

    eggs can withstand low and high temps for a small amount of time.....

    so...... more information might be good. [​IMG]

    the quails were at 8 days and the pigeons were at 2 days...and the pigeon eggs looked like all clear exept for a blog of darkness on each egg in one corner...And the temp range was about from about 89oF to 105oF then I woke up and set it back to 99.5 and for my little nephew...he isn't looking so good...I super glued his hands together...(not to worry i have glue unsticker for when he decides he's sorry)

    You super glued a nine year olds hands together?

    I believe I would seek legal recourse if someone did that to my child.

    'Usually' a temperature that high fries eggs. But it all depends on how long the spike was as to if the inside of the eggs reached the extreme temperature. Time will tell.

    well i won't comment on the glueing hands together thing. my eggs have been cooked twice, one time for about an hour at 113 and the other time about half a day at about 108. you just have to wait and see but the kids in the hatcher are alive and one hatched the other day so i'd say there is hope. now put the glue away.
