    I'm new to the whole incubation thing, but from everything I've read--and even what a few threads here have mentioned--it depends on how long the temp. was up that high. It takes a little bit of time for the internal egg temp. to get up as high as the bator temp, so if you caught it in time, they may be okay.

    I guess I would say wait a little longer--candle in a few more days to see what you've got before you give up on them.....unless someone with more experience recommends otherwise.

    Good luck!!
