    I was out doing yard work today and the house being so warm caused a temp spike to 102! I'm guessing it was for maybe an hour or a little longer, as I had come in and checked before that. For such a short time, my eggs/babies will be okay won't they?

    I have had great hatches incubating at 102. Anything over 103 is bad. I think they will be just fine.

    Thank you! I needed to hear that! lol

    My incubator is home made with a fan and has been pretty good until today. But I'm usually sitting right next to it! Now, I'll be scared to death to leave the house until they hatch!
