    The power was off for about 1 hr - 1 hr 15 min. and it just came back on. We had a huge thunder storm. My incubator temp went down to 95c and then I put a candle in it to try and raise the temp a bit. I got it to go up to about 95.3 and stayed at the temp for 45mins to an hour or so. The temp is back to 95.5 - 100. Will my eggs be ok or will they probably be ruined? [​IMG]

    Gone Through many other posts regarding power outages and I'm not worried anymore. 95 isn't cold and shouldn't effect the eggs at all. I was worried.

    I think they'll be ok, what stage were they at? When you figure in that mama bird leaves the nest sometimes to eat or drink, that really wasn't much of a temperature drop. Give them a few days and candle them, then you should know for sure.
