    My power went out and I'm incubating eggs, after calling the power company they said it would be back on by 2:00. WHAT SHOULD I DO???? I thought about putting them in the sun and heating them that way. Currently I have a towel over it trying to keep heat!

    As someone mentioned already towels. I lost power last night and covered mine with towels and it helped. We also had the benefit of a woodstove and I heated some rice bags as ours was out longer than 3 hours.
