    my incubator temp went up to 105 for about 5 minutes. Do you think anything happened to the eggs in those 5 minutes?[​IMG]

    Those eggs are probably fine. It takes much longer for the internal temperature of the eggs to reach the same temperature as the air.

    I was told that as long as it is not too high or too low for more than 2 hours that the eggs are probably fine. Remember that's the incubator temp the temp in the egg takes longer to get that high.
