    earlier i just started the first day at my new job, but i didnt check the incubator before i left. i just got in and it was up to like 107-108 degrees. most likely, it didnt get that high until after i left since i turned a bit before. im not sure how long it was like that. i seen where the embryos were just starting to develop! i only worked 4-7 today so i was gone about 4-5 hours in town. is this fatal to the embryos? should i just give it up and assume they are dead?

    I wouldn't give up on them. I have not done many hatches but if they were mine I would keep going, candle in a few days to check the development and keep my fingers crossed. Good luck.
