    OK Power is starting to go off all over here. I have 10 eggs in my incubator due to hatch today. How long will they be OK or can I go get my broody hen and let her sit on them? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hot water bottles or a broody hen can help but you have to watch her like a hawk so she won't reject them. Candle the eggs, remove the clear ones.

    I'm in Biloxi - I'm with you. If all else fails, window up for humidity and eggs in the bra-bator!
