Quick Question

I am setting some silkie eggs on friday morning (they will have set out for 12 hours at that point) and we received a card from our power co. that Friday night at 1 am they are cutting the power for 2 hours to make improvements - WHY NOW!!!! What should I do for those two hours and will just 2 hours kill my eggs?

many thanks with any help

I would wait after the power outage and then set the eggs, as I have heard that from day 1-3 it is very important for the temps to be steady and humidity

and a few hours extra before setting the eggs wont be bad

Not sure how it works in your area, but I wouldn't count on it being only 2 hours. Sometimes they can take considerably longer than their estimation, sometimes it only takes 15 minutes to do their job.

Have never tried incubating, but there are many on here who have, and someone will have the best advice.

I would wait and set them early Saturday morning as others have said you dont know for sure it will only be out for 2 hours. Plus at that point they will have just gotten warmed up to be cooled right back off. I would definitely wait b/c of this alone!!
