    So far 1 egg is doing good. Im not sure for about 3 and 2 of them I think are not babies, but I'm not sure. I just candled them and just 1 I know is alive and well. The viens are health. The not sure ones i can see the baby but the viens are scatterd or small. And the rest are just bleh I think I saw a baby in one but no viens virtually. Im not risking taking any out until I really know whos alive and whos dead. Does tgis mean I might only get 1 chock from this batch? But I dont think it would make a big difference because I'm getting 9 new chicks soon and 1 week after that is the hatch day. So the chicks would be 1 week apart.

    I might take the 2nd out and 3rd since they dont look really developed so they died in egg

    Well im not really new ive done incubating before but i accidently killed 7 of my eggs from over heating that happened for no reason. The rest of the times where a very confusing thing that no one knew how all the yolks broke in the egg. Really ive never hatched a chick but im so determined. They might be blood lines idk.

    Now that i think about it the 5 might be bloodlines. I might open 1 up to see if they are dead and if the yolk broke again -_-
