I had a bad reading on the thermometer I first used. My Eggs could have been exposed to temperatures as high as 104 Degrees for their first 3 days. Will they be ok or have they been cooked and not survive.

Not sure Mike. Three days is a long time. Hope they are ok. Maybe someone else can advise.

Candle the eggs in a couple of days to see. They are probably cooked if the temp was 104 for 3 days, but your thermometer may be wrong.

One of the problems anyone has is having 2 thermometers that don't agree. The porblem IS you never know which is correct, 3 is sometimes worse. Find a supplier that has thermometers that are advertised to be +/- 1/2 degree & buy 2. Lyon Electric, the people that make Roll-X & Trun-X incubators has some very good ones. (6") I think you can get them from Double R Supply on line & you can also get one called "Spot Check" which is a digital that is very accurate.
If your incubator was 104, you probably lost them, but follow Rokimoto's suggestion, just to make sure
