    Keep incubating. You won't know if it caused any problems until hatch. I've read univerisity sites that caution 1 degree swing and yet I have read many posts with a high temp like yous and have good results. Depends on how long at heat temp and where the bird is in development. I hit 106 for up to 4 hours and waiting to see the impact . . .

    Sorry for a very general answer; just don't give up yet.

    my ducks had several short 106 spikes (gotta love LG bators) and I had a 100% hatch.
