    Yesterday was Day 8 for the eggs that I am incubating. Decided that I would try and candle them and see if I could see anything (haven't had much success in candling in the past).

    I have 16 chicken eggs in the incubator. 4 barred rocks, 4 speckled sussex, 3 RIR, & 5 buff orpingtons (I also have 21 quail eggs in but I don't candle them)

    Well, from what I can tell 2 have not developed at all (2 barred rocks). Very clear when candled. BUT, 14 looked great and I could see veins and growth!! WOO HOO!!!

    Getting excited.

    Not long now!
