    the first day my RIR eggs were in the incubator....the temp. messed up and went to 113 degrees...i fixed the problem within a day.....should i go ahead and chunk the eggs or will they still hatch?

    Quote:In my opinion, don't give up on them yet. Candle them in a few days,and if you see veins,then they are alright. Don't give up too soon.

    You should still be fine...just wait to day 7 to candle, that will be a good day to see development...I wouldn't toss them just yet.. you have a good chance catching it this early...
