    I woke up a few minutes ago and found that the temp of the incubator was 84 degrdegrees. They are on day 6 and I'm afraid they won't survive help![​IMG]

    Do you know how long they were at a low temperature? Were the eggs cold?

    When a hen is broody, she'll leave the nests for short periods of time and allow the eggs to get cold. Most likely, no harm has come to them, unless it has been low for a long time.

    Well I don't know I put on the air conditioner because it was at 100 degrees and I didn't want it to get hotter but it got down to 67 degrees last night and I woke up to the incubator being in the 80s.

    I quickly heated it up and turned off the air conditioner. I have the chick bator incubator and it heats up ok but you have to watch the temp
