    I'm seeing signs of life which THRILLS me as these are all WELL travelled show eggs - looks like I have 1 Silkie (out of 3), 3 Blue/Splash Ameraucanas (out of 5) and 1 Black Ameraucana (out of 6)and a couple of Cuckoo Marans (out of 6). I'm delighted that ANYTHING is growing!! [​IMG]

    RESIST - RESIST - RESIST

    In the beginning I candled nearly every day, but now I do resist the temptation and only candle on day 10 and when I put the eggs in the hatcher on day 18.

    is it wrong to candle them everyday? i bought a torch on saturday, and well, i have candled a few times LOL. Its sad, im only about day 3-5 (had to put eggs in over a couple of days due to a rooster incident) and its so cool to see the veining happening.

    It looks like i have at least 5 out of 11

    I just have too much to do to candle a lot. My main fear would be dropping or cracking them. Taking them out for a minute is no big deal.
