    I'm doing my first hatch as well. All 6 of my eggs are developing. Beginners luck? Make yourself a good candeling light out of a coffee can, cardboard, and a lamp, and you can really see those little guys move around. Its fascinating!! Good luck with your hatch.

    good luck, I just put my first eggs in the bator, I am also very nervous. I got a incubator for Christmas, I think it is the best gift ever, I am already addicted, I want to buy eggs online to put in it after these hatch (hopefully)
