    ok all, it was day 20 today and nothing yet.
    It is in a hatcher all by itself, in an egg carton, temp is running steady at 99-100. Humidity 65-70.
    Haven't opened it, althought its killing me wanting to candle it or SOMEthing!!
    I hope we didn't kill it moving from the incubator to hatcher?
    This is gona kill me with the waiting...

    Day 20 isn't late. I bet you didn't kill it by moving it.
    By the way, when you say "it" do you mean a single egg?

    Hi,
    Thanks [​IMG]
    Yes, one egg. Started w/5-first time ever incubating.
    One was dented in shipping, one kept candling clear so we finally checked, it was clear, two developed bloodrings but we let them stay a little while longer to look for developement. Finally cracked at day 14 and they were goners. So we're left w/one from this first batch. Today is day 21....I put my ear to the bator to see if I hear anything, haha, I try to talk thru the little holes and see if I get a response, [​IMG]
    We have more to go next week, the hatcher that is, but I'd sure like this guy to make it!
    Wreck here!
    Thanks for the thoughts,
    Angela
