    I was going to suggest that you sit on them - gently. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Use forced air(a small cpu fan hooked up to a GBA battery charger works admirably) as this will bring normal 50% hatching rate to close to 100% in chickens at least!

    Ok, The eggs are safe. To make a long story a lil shorter:

    My dad works at the radar tower. Someone found a bird of prey nest in the vent, and had to take it out. when the guy was getting ready to dump it my dad took it and put it in his truck, which was around 95 degrees. he called me up and told me I had an hour to build an incubator for some red tailed hawk eggs. Anyways, i got it done, and when he got home i identified the eggs as kestrels- I think. They are creamish with brown splattered all over them, looks exactly like the picture of a kestrel egg in my falconry book [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The reason we didnt take it to a shelter was, the closest shelter is over an hour away, and they dont have room for these kinds of things, nor do they have the equipment. I have no idea where the closest fish and game place is, nor do i have any kind of contacts to them. I've gone on their website, but it didnt help...

    Anyways, here is a link to instructions on the incubator i made:

    While my hosue went down to 60F last night, the incubator stayed at 95-103F [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
