    Well as long as it was just for a couple of hours or a day they will be fine.Many people have ups and downs with the temperature but for a short period there is no problem.

    What you can do now is wait 5 more days and candle to see what is going on.Hope everything goes right!

    ok,Thank you. i dont know what the heck is going on. I had the incu pluged in for 3 days prior to putting eggs in. It was at 100 deg. now it seems to be creeping up, Possibly the eggs getting warmer and making more heat?

    jwatts, there are a lot of experienced hatchers right now on the Easter hatch thread (see my signature line below) - you are a few days behind up but welcome to follow along and ask questions.

    I think you will be fine. I had my incubator go up to 109 degrees on about day 2. Now it is day 23 (they are duck eggs) and they are developing good. I've even got a twin egg and both are alive :D
