    Today is Day 16 for my buttons (which are not doing anything- they like their eggs, they dont want to come out)...but yesterday I lost power here for a few hours!!!!!

    My other incubator is on Day 16, and Days 15 and 13 for various chickens. It is hard enough to wait the regular expected incubation period- but to add extra time for low temperatures is just torture!
