    I ran the bator over night and I thought the temps were good. Its down to the last two days to hatch on my Pheasants. I put them in the second bator this am. On second thought, I added a trustworthy thermometer and OH NO. The temp was almost 110F.

    Are the pheasants dead? What are my chances? It was just a few minutes they were in there, not more than 15min.

    i guess its time to cross all fingers & paws and pray

    The internal temp of the eggs couldn't have gotten that hot in just a few minutes. I'm going to guess they are fine!
