    You won't loose anything by letting it go a few more days then candling.

    Probably YES!
    What day are you on? And how long do you think it was too high?

    Even in nature those things happen. Try to candle Day 14 and see what you have- don't give up yet. I have found that sniffing each egg while candling will tell you a lot.

    Mine spiked to 110 for about an hour, and another spike of 104 for a few hours, and I have 8 newborn chicks from that hatch- only one didnt make it.

    You might be okay, just give it a try. But do give them a sniff test daily!

    You don't know when the temp spiked. It might have been several hours, but it might have been half an hour.
