    it has already rearranged the others. I hope the eggs don't break.

    Does it look healthy?

    It looks healthy to me! Congrats. My chicks are supposed to hatch soon too. Lockdown was supposed to be today, but I started it yesterday. I usually would not have done this, but when I was candling them, I saw one of them trying to get through the air cell. I immediately put them into lockdown, 'cause I didn't want that chick trying to hatch in the turner. It's been 14 hrs since. I haven't heard or seen anything yet. Wish me luck! :D

    oooh. I'm wondering since the water in the bowl is low should i grab it from the incubator and fill it? i know opening it can shrink wrap the eggs. :(

    i just don't know what to do.

    i posted a lot more pictures of the chick and stuff in my blog
