    I NEED HELP!!! We are incubation for the first time. The power went off last night from 8:30pm to 6:30am. I did cover them but when I looked at the temp it was 90. I have a week to go with them. Did I loose them?

    Edit; I have 28 eggs. I hope I don't loose them all. This has been the longest 21 days of my life. It seems like its taking longer for my chicks to come than it did for my children.

    Thank you. I am new to BackYardChickins as of today. I am sure I will be on here a lot. Thanks again. Three people, one dog, one bird, one Guinea pig, many fish, and 28 eggs.

    Welcome! Your hatch rate may decrease a bit, but down to 90 isn't really that bad. I think you will still get at least a few chicks. [​IMG]
