    Hi,
    I think they will be fine since it was so early in the incubation.
    Keeping my fingers crossed on your hatch [​IMG]
    Best of luck!

    Many of the chicks I have shown here http://cmfarm.us/cam_1.html were hatched while we had no power after a tornado hit. They got that cold for that long several times that week. I think about 75% still hatched total counting the infertiles.
