    I candled with my junky household flashlight and I saw two babies moving in their eggs! Then I was inspired to continue candling. Of the 44 eggs in the bator 34 look good,even the two I have been hand turning! Now with 44 eggs to candle I got nervous and I hurried along with my flashlight just checking for a dark mass and an air cell.
    I have been told not to count your chickens before they hatch, so I'm not counting, but I expect then to hatch next Monday!

    Yea! that is always exciting the first time a baby moves in the egg. [​IMG] Hope you have a great hatch, keep us updated.
     
  3. [​IMG] You can count those as hatchers.
    I see brooders full of chicks in your immediate future.
    Isn't it amazing what you can see??

    Good luck!

    Dipsy, only 2 of the eggs from you were clear! Excellent for shipped eggs!
    Tomorrow at 11pm starts day 18, so out of the turner and the IBW begins!
