    So I get home at 6pm and all the clocks are flashing. The power was out for just over 5 hours and I have both bators full for Feb 14 hatch. The Hova Bator holds temp longer than the Eco 20. The thermomator I have in the Hova Bator shows daily low temp, it got down to 90 in there. What are my chances of getting any eggs to hatch. Temps in both bators were back up by the time I got home.
    Darn, most of my W/BW Ameraucanas were in the Eco 20
