    I think today (day 12) will be my last candling until I stop turning. So far today, I've counted 7 viable chicks, plus my EE that I can't see inside.
    Will everyone double check me please? [​IMG]

    This is a clear egg for comparison -

    This is the cracked egg, that quit on me -

    And here's a good white egg, the chicks moving around nicely -

    Now, all my air sacs look that big... is that cause for concern? I'm uploading video to youtube, hopefully soon it will finish. My video comes out much better than my candling pix for some reason... ugh [​IMG]

    Thanks NoSpring, I'm excited too [​IMG]. I just hope these remaining eggs hatch or my nieces will be pretty upset. They're only 6 & 4 years old.

    Here's the video, it's not as clear as the last one, but I only take it to send in the girls weekly emails... so... [​IMG]
