    Crap! I have had the temp steady in this thing for 4 days...I seriously left it in attended for 2 hrs and it was up to 106. Did I just kill all these babies???? :(

    We just got our 5 eggs that our pullet isn't sitting on under a heat lamp and before we found out our thermometer wasn't working, I think we seriously had it up to 110 for 30-45 minutes, and were worried we might have cooked ours, but I did read something a little while ago about someone accidentally leaving theirs for 2-4 hours at 108 when the eggs were a few days old, and 5 out of 6 hatched.

    This article is great for explaining viability due to temperature! http://www.brinsea.com/customerservice/poweroff.html

    REMEMBER if your NOT sure NEVER throw that egg!!

    Good luck, some beautiful eggs gonna make beautiful babies!!

    oh and your bator looks like mine, I hated how touchy that temp thing is!! We made a coolerbator and as simple as it was, its awesome!!! wafer thermostat has less than 1 degree variance, set and forget it!! LOVE it!!

    there is a link in my signature if you want to see how easy they are to make!
