    yesterday was my day 18 I candled the eggs and 18 out of 24 eggs developed so I threw out the 6 eggs that weren't any good 4 weren't fertile and 2 had blood lines. Well by now I usually have at least one pip so I'm starting to freak out a little. Any words of advice?

    Yes and I candled them yesterday and seen one moving which is a good sign. I guess patience isn't my best thing when playing the wating game on the hatchlings but I know me being impatient makes it worse and also doesn't speed the process up either.

    Yeah I'm just going to leave them alone and hope for the best. I think I'm just more anxious because I'm hatching them for my sister in law and not for me so I'm wanting some to hatch at least.
