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. 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... 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!
