    Lost power in incubator room last nigth. Incubator temps went down to 64. Day 17 for some and 14 for the others. How long at cold temps will eggs still be okay at.
    Do you think I lost some or are they just going to be delayed?

    Im not sure how long the temp was out. Sometime between 12 and 7 in the morning. I did get the bators going again at 7. Temp went right back up when I turn on the bators. Temp inside bator was 66 didn't know how long it was there.

    I would keep the eggs in there and see how they progress. I wouldn't call it quits by any means. Hoping and praying for those eggs to become babies!

    Don't throw anything out yet. They may be a bit delayed but chances are good that if they were viable before the power outage you'll still get most of them to hatch.
