After incubating a clutch of ball eggs for about 60 days i found out that my incubator has been malfunctioning and instead of incubating eggs at the set temp of 87 deg its been actually more like 80-81 deg. I decided to leave them at those temps because i felt a drastic increase in temps after so long would be dangerous. Well its been about 90 days now and i just noticed them to all start to dimple. Two of them are developing spots that almost look like opaque patches on the eggs. Are they probably dying since they were incubated at such low temps? Should i be pipping them at this point. I know that at 87-89 deg at sixty days they should be fully developed but i dont know what they look like now because of the low incubation temps
Sorry for the lengthy post
