    I candled them yesterday, but my flashlight isn't very bright, so I could only tell which were clear and which were dark other than the air cell, apart from the Sultan egg. The baby Sultan is definitely alive, so i'm assuming most or all of the others are. The only change is the one that I wasn't sure about. It's definitely not growing. I'm away from home at the moment so I can't remember the exact numbers, but either 11 or 12 have development, and the others are clear. My baby Bloodhound knocked a baby gate down onto my incubator right before we left, but I think everything is still OK with it. We'll be away until Sunday, and Monday is day 18/19, so it's helping not checking the eggs every 2 minutes. I want some baby Blue Orpingtons so badly. Hopefully by Tues/Weds i'll have good news. I set the Sultan egg a day later, but if it's a bantam is it likely to hatch around the same time? If it's another rooster i'll send it to you Cynthia as a thank you [​IMG] The one I already have seems to be torn between wanting to attack me and wanting to mate with my shins.
