    today i had to take out the turner, put the eggs back in and put the top on.
    came back about hour or so later and the temp was up 102 [​IMG]

    i dont know if the temp got bumped when i was taking the turner out,

    got temp back to 99.8

    are the chicks going to be ok or no [​IMG]

    102 for that short period of time shouldn't be a problem, the internal temps of the eggs probably didn't even get to that by then and even if they did, you caught it early enough where they probably weren't harmed. Good Luck!

    This is our first time hatching eggs. We placed our eggs in the bator 17 days ago. We read and followed the instructions and going by the candling we have done almost every other day shows growth with the babies. The temp though is 103/104 and we have kept the water full inside checking it every other day. My husband seems to think that the temp. is fine or we would have started smelling some bad eggs and so far each egg is fine and showing movement. We wanted to see with our first batch a baby chicks before trying to adjust the temp.
