    I'm incubating 6 magpie ducks eggs, all of which have been fertilized and were growing healthily. They are all 9 days old.
    This morning we had a power cut and the eggs were without heat for about 4 hours. I did what could, closing the air vents, putting a towel on it, etc. When the power came back on, I measured the temperature and it was at 25ºC (77ºF). I'm just wondering would the eggs have survived, should I throw them out and start again?
    Thanks [​IMG]

    Let them go, they're probably ok. Give them a couple of days and candle them to see how they're doing. I've had the power cut out for longer than that and my eggs still hatched!
