    What day are you on and how long was it that low? My power went out for 2 hours the other night and my temps dropped to 85. I candled the next day and they seemed fine.

    I've had it go lower when the power went out and I still had a good hatch.

    * I think it depends on how long it was down, but not sure. The eggs-perts will be along. For now, I would get it back up to temp. and wait and see.

    Low temps are better than high spikes. If the temp wasn't low for more than a few hours, they should be just fine. It'll only slow development a bit.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about.
