    Eggs can take some cooling and be perfectly fine. Rather like when the hen gets off the nest each day to eat, drink and poop. Studies have shown that some cooling each day can produce better results from eggs. Prolonged periods of cooling can damage developing embryos though.
    This is an excellent read from Brinsea on power outages ~ http://www.brinsea.co.uk/downloads52

    :fl the power stays on for you.
