    Whelp, just candled my eggs for the second time!!! I've got ALOT more development than I thought I did!

    Out of 12 + 14 = 26 eggs, I've got 11 left in the incubator. The 14 got lost in the post office due to a miscommunication, so I'm not too upset about those. Plus the seller is sending me more!!! [​IMG] The remaining egg from her smells "off" but I'll give it a few more days to redeem itself.

    I had 12 eggs of my Langshans in there...so far, 10 are developing! WHOOP! The other 2 had dead veins, so they were developing but died. Something's going right in there!!! Woohoo!!!

    Grats on the hatch so far! Good luck with the ones still in [​IMG]

    If the one smells off (or at all, I don't think good eggs are really supposed to have much of a smell), you probably shouldn't let it stay. 'Off' can quickly become 'bomb' and you certainly don't want to deal with that >.<

    Quote:True, but the embryo was still moving. It could have been it was relatively close to another one that was waiting to be a time bomb. I've marked it and will smell it again in 2 days.

    I've gotten REALLY good at smelling stinkers almost the day they turn.
