    There was a big storm last night in my area. My incubator stopped working for 3 hours due to the power failure. There are around 40 quails eggs and they are sitting there for 11, 8, 5 and 2 days respecitvely. I am wondering if they still survive without heating in 3 hours. Thank you.

    You should have no problem. We had two power outages here, one for 3 hours, the other for 5 hours with the same set of eggs, had all hatch out. [​IMG]

    You will be ok, we had ours go out in the middle of winter for about 5 hours & still hatched some.
