Thanks, I was worried it might be to big. The yolk touching the air cell won't be a problem will it?

Thank you! We don't have cell phone service where I live, so I don't even bother with getting a decent phone. Just a cheap one for when I'm some place other than home! I take my pictures with an actual camera. I know, weird, right?
The d'Uccle eggs are cream to tan color.

The egg looks perfect for day 2.
You should see veins on day 4 or 5 if the egg is developing correctly.
I usually do not candle until then and do not toss eggs until day 14--unless it smells---
Thanks. I'm a terrible worrywort and I want to do everything right. I think I will candle the eggs tomorrow and then let them be until day 7. I took the plug out like you recommended, it doesn't seem to have affected the temp or anything like I was afraid it would. I check about every hour.
When it comes time to candle the lot of them should I take them all out and put the lid on the incubator with them outside of it, or just take the lid of and keep them in without the lid while I candle?
Hatch day! 3 pips out of 40 eggs so far. I JUST heard chirping finally. It seriously feels like christmas. This is our second hatching attempt. First one did not go well at all (no survivors). When we candled them at day 18 before lockdown we had 36 wiggling chicks. I just really hope we get some fuzzballs for my kids to see when they get home from school. Fingers crossed!!! Im like a nervous new mommy!
Great news! I have a lot coming up too, the first of the month. Didn't set quite that many, 34, 3 have been tossed so far.
Sally, I told you something was wrong with your baby face, it doesn't blink! Here you go.
Good luck! Won't be long, you will have all of your babies. Waiting on photos of cute fluffy butts.
ron is right, you don't want any stinky ones staying in, and trust us, you will know when you take a sniff of a bad one!
Just posted photos of my flock since I recently cleaned up the run and did some work in the coop. Link is in my signature, go take a look at the thread if you're interested. No roos though, we got rid of all ours.
