    I candled last night. We definitely have 6 with development! I was really hoping for a lot more (I set 24 eggs). I don't know if it is a fertility issue, or incubator issue. Or it could be my fault. I noticed that the ones developing were the ones grouped around the ziploc water wiggler. I wonder if the temps in the other areas of the incubator are too low? It's homemade. I am going to Walmart in a little while to get more thermometers to place around the bator.
    I guess it is a good thing I decided to do this test hatch before I bought eggs.
