    Today is day 5 of incubation so i candled the eggs. This is my first time hatching so i wasn't really sure what to look for, but i can't tell that there is anything in any of the eggs they all looked the same to me. Should i toss them out or keep them in the bator?

    You should wait 7 to 10 days to candle then you will see veining and the air sack will be bigger. Good luck

    Keep them. My first hatch I wasn't sure what I was looking it until day 10, gradually it got easier for me.
