    Woke up this morning to a blown breaker to my incubator room. We had storms last night and all was well when I went to bed. Got around this AM about 7 and noticed the tripped breaker.
    When I powered it back up the temp was 30.5c/87f.
    I have 130 eggs in the incubator and 40 in the hatcher due to hatch Thursday.
    What are the damages?
    Will those in lock down be OK?
    I know I'm not the only one to ever have this happen but, this sucks.

    That does suck! I've had that happen during a storm too, chicks were in lockdown and the power went out. Hubby hooked up the generator before he went to work, and things turned out OK.

    I would just turn things back on and hope for the best. Never give up. I can't say what will happen, but nature can surprise you, that's for sure.

    Wishing you good luck and let us know how things turn out if you can!
