    I went out this a.m. and my temp was 120 degrees. I just set the eggs Sunday morning. Should I throw them away or give it a try?
    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    No, don't toss them. But I would adjust the temp to 99-100 right away. Candle in a week and see what you have. No reason to not give them a shot, you might be happily surprised!
    During the summer the eggs do get hot under a mama hen, so they may be just fine, especially if they were just set!!
    Good Luck!
