I am nervous now have an unexpected 3 days not going to be at home and son works all day and we have incoming storms. almost tempted to unplug it and take it with me out to the farm but at the half way point I don't think that would be a good thing, but haven't put the barbaque away yet so at least if something happens can heat water to put in bags for them, only 10 minute drive in from the farm lol. the 28th can't get here fast enough.
I have a question for you more experienced hatchers, I have some very dark barred rock eggs which I have trouble seeing when I candle until hatch time is there a trick to it?
next hatch outta be fun
amerecuana,buff orpington hens by the RIR rooster
and doing more of the white leghorn hen by Barred rock rooster as everyone fell in love with the chick from first hatch and wants to get some of those chicks
Make sure you shine your light into the air cell/ fat end. That will give you the best chance to see in them. :-) Use the brightest Led flashlight you can find (they don't generate heat while candling) or your cell phone like smschultz suggested. You still may not be able to see blood vessels or good details, but you should be able to see the embryo and possibly movement, and can see your air cell growth. Good luck!
