    I just found out that the fan in my bator wasn't working...
    Today is 2nd day and I think the fan was out the whole time..
    So it was still air for 3 day on temp of 99~100.
    Just turned on the fan and the temp spiked up to 108... It's going down right now to 107..
    The temp spike has been around for about an hour..
    Will this be a problem? [​IMG]
    Should I just stop the hatch?

    Quote:By no means -NO- You are the current "poster-child" (so to speak) for a frantic-hatcher-person that is freaking out because of a glitch in the process. Odds are, your hatch is gonna be successful to a certain degree.....or to the max.......... Hang in there......been there.....done that.........and had many living little fuzzy butts to take care of....... [​IMG]

    I had a temp spike of 112*F and I hatched out lil fuzzies. You will be just fine. It takes awhile for it to reach that temp inside the egg.

    same here, i had a spike up to 109 before, as long as it doesn't stay there for hours on end, you are fine(gotta remmeber the inside of the egg stays insulated due to the shell)
