    well I didn't think it was possible but after my incubator hit 117. I decided to get rid of the eggs well i started cracking them open out of 100 chicken only 4 was still alive. so i decided only to crack 5 of my 177 quail eggs 2 of them were alive so i stuck them back in and yesterday they started hatching so far 34 hatched 2 of them died. found that the eggs that were in the back of the incubator were the ones that survied the extreme heat.
