    I'm on day 10 and just candled my eggs for the first time. Out of 12, 10 look amazing!!! The other 2 I think are dead, but I will wait and check again in a few days. [​IMG]

    I am very new at this but it's really addicting!!! I feel like they're my babies every time I see them when candling or when they hatch. Crazy. I need a hobby. Oh, wait... [​IMG] this has become my hobby. haha

    I wish the eggs were clear so I could watch what's going on in the egg every day. How amazing would that be???

    These are my first barred rock chicks to hatch! [​IMG]

    Party on! It's hard to wait so long. After hatching hundreds of eggs now, the candling isn't nearly as exciting as it once was, but the hatching process still fascinates me.
