Think I should give up or see what happens?

    Yesterday I had a couple problems. In the morning when I woke up the incubator was 83F and I plugged it in as fast as possible. What happened was the surge protector was accidently flipped to off instead of reset "My dog did it" Then again it happened last night and the bator was at 91F. Think the eggs still have a fighting chance?


    Edited to add: Today is day 13 for these eggs

    Rig something so the dog can't get at the surge protector!

    Good Luck!

    I had to unplugg the surge protector and plugged another one in. I have it under my bed now and she is to big to crawl under there. As soon as these guys hatch I am moving the bator someplace else that She cant get to.
