    my fan quit and in order to replace it I need to keep the lid open for awhile..will the lid being opened for long time hurt the eggs( day three of incubation) or is there a safe way to prepare the eggs for an open lid period? Thank you in advance for those who respond.

    A hen gets off her eggs a couple of times a day to eat and poop. Your eggs should be okay.
