    Have done my last candle, looks like only egg 2 is left alive. Shall I take the rest out now, especially number 3 as it sloshes like water with no viscosity at all now. [​IMG]

    Only the second pic looks viable, I'm sorry. Te last one is a dud, and others looked to have grown and then quit.

    Yes, I would take all out but the second. It is the only one that looks viable at this point.

    I would take those two bad eggs out. They might burst and then WHAT A STENCH! Good luck with that middle egg!

    Good luck with your little baby! It's so hard to watch over them and wait and wait and end up with just one. I started a hatch with 34, now have 23. Day 18 is Tuesday and I think I have a few more duds, plus very chocolate BCM's that I can't see through. Keep us posted![​IMG]
