    i left the house and the incubator was at 100.2 degrees and had stayed there all night so i thought the eggs would be fine in i left the house for 2 hours

    well i get back and the temp is at 112.2 [​IMG]

    this is not good , so do you guys think they cooked ? is there any chance of hatching now

    They should be fine. I dont think 2 hours will hurt them. If it was more then a day then yes.

    It all depends on how hot it actually got inside the eggs. 2 hours shouldn't be enough time to kill them all. You may have lost a few, but there still should be several alive and kicking.

    Just keep them going.

    You sound like me lol. I check the bator from day 1 - day 21 every 5 minutes. Temp spikes and drops happen when your sleeping or away for more then a hour. I hate when that happens.

    Last year I was hatching buff orp eggs and the power went out for over 8 hours. I woke up and the temp was 68F. 12 out of 14 eggs hatched. What kind of eggs do you have in your bator?

    I owned buff orps and still own barred rocks. Sweet tempered breeds. I dont know about the speckled ones though sorry. You got yourself a good mixed flock eggs. Hope to see some pics when hatch day comes.
