    Mother turkey did not return to her eggs after our dog chased her away:( After waiting and staying away for 6hours (by then half the eggs were missing) we decided to move the remaining eggs indoors under a heat lamp. I put a thermometer in the box with the eggs and it hovers between 27 and 32 degrees celcius (around 90 F). What temperature should they be kept at? Do they even have a chance of surviving after cooling down for 6 hours?

    Yes, they might still make it. Check out the learning center page. How to incubate eggs will be laid out nicely for you there.
