    Wyandotte eggs

    Does anyone have any experience with wyandotte eggs hatching in 22 days instead of 21? This is my second hatch with them and that seems to be a trend because the other eggs in the incubator were different breeds and they hatch mostly on day 21.

    Chicks are hatching. Take them out?

    Some of my chicks are hatching. Should I take the dry ones from the incubator or should I leave everything alone until its all over? There is water on the windows. Would lifting the top hurt the ones that are only pipped?

    Candling on day 5

    I tried candling on day five and the only thing I could see was a dark blob. They are brown standard size eggs, and I have never candled or incubated before, so my light might not be strong enough. But, is it normal for dark, thick shelled eggs to be tough to see through?
