    The incubator was 72 degrees. I turned the breaker back on and some of the eggs still hatched.

    Last winter on our coldest night we lost power. I was around 2 weeks into incubation. The power had been off for a couple of hours when I discovered the power off, my incubator temp was 78 degrees. Luckily I had a battery pack and an inverter. I plugged the incubator into it and got the temp back up. After a couple of more hrs the power came back on. I candled the eggs and saw movement. I still had a good hatch
