5 due for me on...uhhhhhh...Wed-Fri. I'm nervous too! I can't believe it's so close!
I was shocked and amazed to find that one of the eggs ACTUALLY has an aircell where it's supposed to be, and what is hopefully a little dark blob of curled of chick-ness! It certainly looked chicken shaped! I nearly dropped it in amazement, which would have been horrible to say the least, lol. The rest are inconclusive at best. One of them is very dark and it's hard to make out anything.
None of them really smell bad (the dark one smells of egg? But not like...rotten or anything...it's weird) so I decided to leave them in there since I hardly know what I'm doing.
I might look into that Brinsea sale now...so tempting! But I kinda wanted to wait to see how this hatch went before we got a new 'bator.
My hens are still not leaving the nest, so I am still
hopeful. How many days do you wait before giving up? I have not candled as I didn't know anything about how to go about it. Hens are Bantams, so I figured 21 days was the #. Oh well I will be hoping maybe something tomorrow.
