    Well if it was 99.5 then rose to 118 in 30 min. then they are probably ok. The temp. in the egg does not change that fast. Candle and see if you see any movement. Let us know if you see any movement. Hope you have a good hatch. [​IMG]

    yeah a spike that fast probably didn't affect them. lets hope they will be fine. JUST DONT LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN!

    I had a fast steep spike a week ago, and mine are still developing (caught it really quickly, like within a few minutes). So, I would say don't give up, hopefully you caught it quickly enough.
