    I got 7 shipped eggs and candled, 2 were clear so I cracked and threw out (I have to check my work because Im new at this.
    1 had a blood ring-it had died for some reason about day 6
    that leaves 4
    1 of the four is very lively and looks good i hope its a girl
    1 looks ok but i didnt see movement
    2 do not look to promising-I will just have to wait and see on them (they have dark shells)

    edit:well I am learning a lot-built my own incubator and never hatched eggs in my life sothings are going ok I guess.
    I want to see one of those sweet little newborns though.
    I am ready to let my hens do the work if any decide they are in the mood.
