    today (day 20 for my egg's)
    the power turn off ....

    it take me half hour(more or less) to learn that power is off so i run t my incubator , t take it t a hoter room, i open it place inside hot water and i put some blanket around him, after 1 hour the power come back and i put the incubater in his place with the blanket AND NOW I AM A LITTLE DOWN AND EXPECT THE WORST..... :(

    Relax….they should be fine. I've had power go off for several hours and the chicks hatched just fine. At day 20, the chicks are already able to generate a little of their own heat so having the power off for a short time probably won't make any difference.

    Definitely relax.....next time I would wait a couple of hours before you disturb the incubator.
    Like a refrigerator or freezer, you open it you loose the temperature (and humidity).
    Hope all goes well!
