First timer!! Please help!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I picked up some eggs today thinking they were just laid, but upon candling, I've discovered they are probably at least 14 days along!
Can someone give me an educated guess as to which day we're on? Any help is appreciated.

Sorry, can't see your picture.  You see development in the eggs?

Yes, I do! It's quite dark in there and I can see the embryos moving around.

Oh wow.  The seller must have taken them out from under a broody.  

 

You could just wait for the first external pip and then up your humidity/lockdown the incubator then.

 

Good luck!

Thank you so much for your reply, do you have any idea how far off they might be?

I'm traveling today and about to lose cell service. Try again to post a picture and I'll take a look at it tonight.
