Ok, it's day 6 on my silkie eggs in the rubbermaid cooler-a-bator. I've watched this thing non stop it seems - if it's not the humidity, it's the temps, always worrying if it is OK! I keep telling myself that if eggs hatch out from under a chicken that gets off the nest at least once per day to eat, etc, and is constantly rolling them around, etc that this bator thing SHOULD work... still it's nerve wracking! Now for my question - when should I candle the first time? I'm finding some say 7 days, some at 10 days. Also, anyone have a good idea for a homemade candler? I've see a few from searching, but nothing that I've got stuff to make here... I am approaching the candling thing with tremendous trepidation - what if NONE of them are viable... what if ALL of them are viable.... OK, venting is over for tonight... TIA for any tips!
