    I've incubate my chicken egg (30 eggs) for exactly 1 week (set 19 july). Today, due to busy time, and my mother give me too many works [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I forget to turn off 1 of my bulb, the result is my bator reach 56 C (132.8 F) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] will there be any survivor?

    the temp was too low since it's been raining from last night so I decided to turn on 1 backup bulb (usual is 1 main bulb) ... I think of waiting it for about 5 minutes and turn it off since it'll be enough to warm up the bator. but, my mom keep asking me to get to work and ask more and more. I forget the egg, about 2 hours later, I went to wash my hands and just remember to watch my bator, I shocked [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] grrr..... I'd like to use all that cursed word here but I think mods will get angry [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I can't speak anymore when see the temp in my bator [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] there's evil in my mind.. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I shutdown all bulb, open bator and turn on fan to my bator. will there be any survivor of that extreme temp? I'd like to candle it this night (it's about 6 PM) but I won't be so sure to candle them anymore. evil in my mind every second now, how difficult it for me to keep the eggs for one week now and now there's this accident. there's no thermostat, it's expensive [​IMG] [​IMG], this is Indonesia, full of garbage and corrupter country with ever lasting power outage.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I'm going to say the possibility of there being survivors is probably nil. The highest we've ever seen survivors has been less than 110 F. [​IMG] I would still candle, JUST IN CASE, but don't get your hopes up.

    last night I candled it, I found out that some still moving inside (of course not my hand shaking on them) I see there are still some chance available, although I've tosses out about half dozen other..

    Hope they're still alive and can make their way till 21st day. [​IMG]

    thank you everyone for your help and information. [​IMG]

    HOLY MY GOSH!! 132.8 F!?!?!?!?! [​IMG] I don't think ANY chick could survive that!! Your really lucky that you still see some moving. But be careful because the higher the temp the earlier the chicks will hatch. If it stayed 132.8 F to long than it may have effected the chicks, wich will bring problems when/if they hatch. Good luck with your eggs!!! [​IMG]
