I think I'll peek today as well. It's just so much fun!

So we have four with development, two are questionable. The two look clear at this point but we will wait and see.

Day 7 candle, 8 of 12 shipped eggs looking great! Pulled the other 4, no development. Not bad after a trip from California to West Virginia!

My flock eggs, all 13 appear fertile and growing. My bearded girls eggs are very dark, so there could be some clears, but I'm pretty sure I saw veining in them all!

Awesome! Your going to have a bunch of cute chicks!

I just did my 7 day candle too. Four look great. 2 clears. It's ok because I was just looking to replace 1 bird. Fingers crossed these make it and 1 is a hen!

So far we have been lucky with hens. I'd say 75 percent of the chicks we hatched last year were girls and our cackle surprise box was about 80% girls. I was amazed! As long as we get one pullet out of this hatch it will be ok. :D 2 more weeks!
