Eight degrees is a lot, and yes, that will impact the eggs. They'll be getting cold enough that development slows, or stops entirely, and this might eventually kill them. I recommend moving the incubator into a room with more stable temperatures.

I was afraid of that. I have it in the best place. I use a space heater for heat, cheaper than propane. Here in Florida it usually doesn't get that cold that long. Will putting a heating pad over or under for the night be ok? It's just a little 7 egger.

Hello? Anyways, since nobody answered about the heating pad, and it didnt get as cold, i put a couple towels over top the incubator to help hold the heat. This morning it was at a toasty 99. :celebrate
