    What day were the eggs on? Sometimes you can still have a hatch from them even if the incubator has been off for hours. I've lost power lots of times for half a day or more and still had a hatch.

    They weren't that far along then, I'd venture to say you would have had a hatch. Sorry.

    There are lots of eggs for sale in the auction section that you can buy to replace them.

    I agree with tuffoldhen.....that early in their incubation they probably would have been ok.

    Would of asked here before tossing them. Likely all or most would still have hatched that early in incubation.
