    I put 29 eggs in last night as well. Mine are a mixture of mutts, but the kids are already asking if they are hatching yet. I hope you get a good hatch.[​IMG]

    I just put 12 pearl white leghorns eggs in my first bater. Eggs < 24 hours old. Bater < 24 hours old. 21 days of this? I don't think I can wait that long! Hold on, I think I'll go check them again.[​IMG]

    I just candled the eggs that I put in on December 28. Of the 29 that I have in there, I don't see anything in 5 of them. One I am not sure about. And one is from an EE and I can't see through the green shell. The 22 others were swimming around in there. I was worried because my power went out when I was gone on Tuesday and the temperature was at 92 degrees when I got home. I hope they continue to develop and hatch without any problems.

    I candled my 12 day b4 yesterday and 10 looked good, one was clear and one had a very dark layer. I am assuming it is bad, but I left all 12 in the bater and added 14 more.
