    I have 24 eggs in my homemade bator in my classroom. My students are so excited!
    They are so good at watching the temp and making sure I don't forget to turn them. We are on day 4. This is my first time doing this so I'm trying to learn whatever I can to make these babies hatch! When should I expect to see something when I candle them? Any good info, sites or pics to help me learn what to look for when candling?
