    I just got home from work- and both my "bottom of the eggs" thermometer and my "top of the eggs" thermometer read 102.7, humidity is at 42%- it could have been like this all day, I have no way of knowing- it is very humid and sticky here today..Please tell me I didnt cook my two little Serama eggs. [​IMG] (well or the others, for that matter- but these little ones are on Day 16).
     
  2. You are so close just carry them on and see. You are due to candle in a couple days....

    You should be just fine. If you said temps of 104 or higher, I would say you probly cooked some of them. Dont give up on them.

    Well, I posted then I went in there and turned each egg (no turner)...and I candled my two little seramas- I am scared to even hold them right now, so afraid I will drop (another) one. I "chicky talked" to them, lol...my family thinks I am crazy..and one was moving a little in there, and the other one was throwing a fit! heh heh....live babies live![​IMG]
