    Yes, I am sure they will be fine...just adjust it now. I had mine spike up to 115 before when I was at work...I panicked and asked the same question....they hatched on time and was a successful hatch.

    I really would say, I don't know, I hope it wasn't there very long....Over 102 can be cooked unless just a minimal short spike or error in thermometer. Praying all will go well, keep us posted...
     
  5. Hi! A spike of 110 for a very short time isn't a killer.
    I could tell a story of a husband who never in 5 years ever touched the incubators/hatchers, but just yesterday *thought* the hatching chicks *sounded* cold and dinked with the thermostat --- the hatcher was 112* when *the wife* went in to check. *The wife* could seriously pinch his head off for messing with the incubator/hatchers and walking off ( but it's nobody that lives here).
