My chicks are supposed to hatch any day and while I was at work my bulb died and I didn't see it until the temperature had dropped to 70. Has anyone had chicks hatch after the temp had dropped that low?
People have power outages all the time and still hatch. I've read where a person thought there hatch was over so tossed what was left in the garbage to start coffee next morning and hear chirping from the trash. It's a wonder that they don't all hatch with crazy positive things like that.
You just don't know until you wait and see eggs moving or candle and look for movement.
