    First day in and i get home to a 105 incubator. Think they are fried or maybe a chance since only day one? So sad now just been a bad week all around.

    Maybe it wasn't spiked for long? I would get the temp fixed then give it a week maybe 10 days and candle, you should see some veins by then to know if any are still good.

    Gonna let em stick it out. Gonna take my a week or so to get enough from my hens to try again. Just sucks and goes with the rest of my week
  6. Hi! On Day 1 you are still reading 'air temperature' and not any where near 'internal egg temperature'. There is a strong possibility the eggs never reached killing temps. I'd give them til Day 5 (at the least) and candle for development. You'll know more then.
    I hope your eggs alll are growing despite the high temps.
    edited to add: Sorry you are having a raggety week.
