Hi everyone. I'm incubating some eggs for the first time. Started in a homemade incubator that I monitored closely. Candled at 5 & 7 days & 6/7 were viable. On day 8 the center temp hit 104. Two hrs before, it was 100.5 so I estimate it was above 102 for about an hour.
I figured they were toast but moved them to a new incubator just in case. Just candled on day 13 (12 for one egg) & surprised to see life in all 6! Some are clear to see but a couple of the dark eggs a bit tougher. I am able to identify good air sacs in all.
My concern is whether the hot temp exposure could have done harm. Has anyone experienced successful hatch after high temps?

The only one that (possibly) looks like it’s on day 13 is the last one. The first one looks day 6, second looks day 6, third looks like day 9. I’ve had successful hatches from temp spikes but not for that long. My guess is that the ones that aren’t growing may live for a while but never develop right in order to hatch. I would keep an eye on them. Maybe keep this thread updated?

Thank you. There are only two eggs pictured, each from 2 different angles. First one is on day 12 & the dark spot is the eye. I captured great movement on video but couldn't upload it. Next two pics are a blue egg on day 13. The light doesn't permeate as well. I'll definitely keep updated & try to post some other pics.

I captured a few better pics from video of the movement.
These two are the same egg shown in the first two pics above, day 12:

Today is day 15 (14 for one egg). I'll candle again before lockdown.

Candling update, day 16/17.
I think all but one egg are still viable. I detect a little movement but what veins I see look blurred, maybe detached?

This is the first egg in both previous sets of pics. Filling in & good movement on day 16:

The blue eggs! So dark now I couldn't get a good pic. But there are two, and I do see some movement.
