    Okay light bulb went out it's been less than 24 hours since the eggs have been set. Temp dropped to about 87 Before I realized it wasn't just off due to temp.


    Will the eggs be okay?

    i read from some posts that embryo develops at 86 deg. and as long as temp fluctuations are not prolonged, it should be ok. i assume you have got the bulb replaced and temp is back up?
    i'm a first time hatcher too, in lockdown phase, so no experience yet.
    let's hear it from the experts.
