    On roughly Day 11, the incubator went on a wild temp spike, but all but one of the embryos somehow survived. Then, 2 nights ago, we had a small spike and again, all the embryos are doing great. Hatch is scheduled to take place Wednesday. I was reading the sticky for incubation and hatching, and an article said that any temp variation results in likely failed hatch.

    If they are surviving in the egg shell, are they likely to still not hatch? Does it mean I should be more likely to intervene on their behalf after 20 hours or so of pipping?

    Thanks,

    Laura

    In my house, LG stands for Lousy Garbage. I know it's bad when my husband sees it as such a point of stress for me that he's begging me to spend a bunch of money on a better one!
