    I candled my eggs that were taken from under two hens yesterday and they are all at different stages, but seem to be progressing well. Does anyone have a good picture of a day 18 candling or a link to one so I can see approximately when to move them to the other incubator without the turner? I found a few on here but am having trouble still. Thanks so much!

    There is not a lot to be seen on day 18 to 21, if you look closely you may see some movements but do not worry if you do not. As long as the eggs are filled with a dark shadow then you are good to go on day 18, now all you have to do is wait a few more days for them to hatch.
