We have our first hatch date on june 7-8...


We won this auction on BYC for a dozen eggs. Leghorns. We received 16. They have been incubating since May 18th. Last wed. When should we candle them? We have a little giant inc with egg turner. Been doing our best to maintain 99.5. We have four thermometers in there. We had a digital hygrometer but feel its not working properly.





Please join in.. Its our first hatching attempt!
I read somewhere in here you should candle your eggs after the first week in incubator..what are we looking for? How can we tell if the incubation is doing well? Are we looking for an embryo, a shape, darkness?? How do we know whether its good or not?

I hope you can get some takers. I am total hatch-a-holic, however hubby recently lost his job and all my birds are mixed. No I have niot put the bator away.

We candled our eggs last night. 8th Day. It was very exciting for us.. being our first time.. according to the egg embryo chart we believe 12 /16 are growing... so we set the other 4 eggs aside from the rest, still in the incubator.. just in case we where wrong...

I have 5 duck eggs under a broody Silkie that are due to hatch on the 6th (unless they are Muscovy). Can I join, or does it have to be a bator?
