    I Am On Day 14. When Should I Candle And Toss Out Eggs That Are Not Developing? Or, Should I Just Leave Them All In Until After The Hatch Is Complete?

    You could wait until day 18 when you put them in lockdown. [​IMG]

    If you take out the bad ones it will give the good ones more room and you don't want a bad egg in there rolling around. [​IMG]

    By day 14 if you can see an egg hasn't made any progress I toss mine. There is no point in keeping it and if it starts to seep or explode it could ruin the rest of the good eggs. Good Luck on your hatch!
