    My first attempt at hatching. Not sure what I'm looking at.
    I see a mass and an area where the light shines bright.
    Is this the air cell? Do I have a chicken? Or a hard boiled egg?
    I candled a few times. Should I not do this anymore? I'm supposed to remove them from the turner. Since I placed them in there about 8pm March 3rd, Then I assume I should remove them tonight around 8pm as well right?

    Nervous and excited!! I want to do something. ANYTHING!!!
